Re: [Request] Apply for a coordinator

Hi Danishka,

If you are available to review any new contribution, I think it's fine if you remain the coordinator.

Otherwise, it would be great if you could train Udesh until he's ready to commit translations of acceptable quality, then transfer coordinatorship at some later time.

Udesh, you should also try to follow the standard workflow on, that is to "Reserve a translation", then "Upload the translation (instead of pushing translations in a simple comment.
(see also
And unless you have a specific reason to partially translate a module, you should ideally push 100% translated files.

Hi Claude,

I have no objection on someone becoming as a coordinator.

Whoever becoming a coordinator should have at least basic idea of localization standards.

Hi Udesh,

Please review your files before uploading to any project, not just gnome.
For example, you have translated January as දුරුතු instead of ජනවාරි (which we use as the standard Sinhala term/word for the month of January.) [1],[2] Now, if you produce a short version of months in Sinhala, no one can recognize the list. I hope you understand my point.

Localization of gnome or any other project/application should not introduce conflicts with existing applications and other content. For example, Ubuntu [3]

Let's say a student reading an announcement from the Ministry of Education for starting new school term. Ministry is referring to 2021 ජනවාරි 01, but your calendar has a different label for the month of January as දුරුතු.

[1] <> [2] <> [3] <>

I wish you all the best!

    Udesh, great proposal, however I don't see you as a translator in the
    team. That would be a first step, along with some translation
    uploads on
    the site.

    Danishka, it would be awesome if you could confirm that request and
    us if you are interested to continue coordinating the team or not.
