This is an automatic notification from status generation scripts on:

There have been following string additions to module 'ekiga.master':

+ "0: 56kbps, 1: ISDN, 2: DSL128, 3: DSL512, 4: LAN, 5: Custom"
       + "Kind of network selected in the assistant"

Note that this doesn't directly indicate a string freeze break, but it
might be worth investigating.

Hi Eugen,

Your recent commit in ekiga broke string freeze [1]. If you have string
changes to make, I suggest you branch ekiga for gnome-2-30 before
committing them.




I might be missing something.  At I see that string freeze starts
on July 12, isn't that right?!

Yes, for the next cycle. But when a module is string freezed, it is
forever! So the only way to 'defreeze' it is to create a branch so the
freeze apply to the branch and no more to master.

Is it possible to put gnome-2-26 branch in freeze, as it is the current
stable branch, and let master as unstable (we hope to create unstable
releases for it)?

Yes, of course, if you confirm that the version released in GNOME 2.30
is from the 2.26 branch, it is even the right thing to do.

We do not yet know which version will be released with gnome 2.30. So I reverted the change, sorry for bothering you.

I still do not understand why this constrain. It seems to me that the natural solution is that 1-2 months before each release, the branch (or the HEAD if the branch does not exist) enters string freeze, and before that everything is allowed. This gives translators 1-2 months to work on translations. But we are now four months away from the release and we cannot make string changes for this release...

Reference: "The string freeze will continue for every module affected by the freeze until the module has branched for gnome-2-30. Only after that point, HEAD will no longer be affected by the string freeze. The gnome-2-30 branch will be affected by the string freeze in eternity."
