[Gimp-developer] gimp-2-8 branch string freeze till 2016-10-27


I'm announcing a string freeze for the gimp-2-8 branch till 2016-10-27
to give the translation teams time to update the translations for a GIMP
2.8.20 release.

The corresponding mail to the gnome-i18n list is available at

During a string freeze, any changes to or addition of translated strings
is a no-go. See
https://wiki.gnome.org/TranslationProject/HandlingStringFreezes for
details (but ignore the mention of specific GNOME branches there).

Patches without changes or additions of translatable strings can go into
the gimp-2-8 branch during this time frame. Everything else will
have to wait until the release is made, if at all: In general, string
changes should be kept to the absolute minimum in the stable branch.

This does also apply to cherry-picking commits from e.g. master - if
there is an important bug fix with a string change, check if you can
apply just the fix to gimp-2-8.

It is also a good idea to mark any bug in Bugzilla by the "string"
keyword if it alters strings in any way.
