We would like to announce the creation of a new spree-i18n being hosted in Github. This is a stand alone project where we intend to recruit a large number of volunteer committers to maintain the locale files. This is basically the same approach followed by the Rails project which keeps their localizations in rails-i18n.
The project is actually a Spree extension. This extension contains
translations only. The rest of code needed to support the i18n features
is part of the Spree core. You will now need to install the spree-i18n
extension (or simply copy just the relevant locale files) if you want to
use any of the community supplied translations of Spree. Please see the
i18n documentation for further details.
The core team is still 100% committed to outstanding i18n support. We’re asking the Spree community to help us to maintain the locale files as you have done for us in the past. Now it will be even easier to do so because we will be giving our volunteers direct access to the repository so that these changes can be made immediately without waiting for the core team to apply patches.
Over the next few days we’ll be going through old commits and automatically adding previous locale committers to the new project. If you would like to become a new volunteer or if we’ve left you off the list, please send a request to spree-user and we’ll be glad to add you.
