Here's a question. Application reviews written in en_GB are of course suitable to show when running in en_AU or en_CA. Can anyone thinks of any other locales that should be "compatible" with each other?

If you've still not taken the Dell survey, now is the time to do it. :)

I didn't know about the Red Hat fw repo for OEM's. That's really cool.

Does anybody know any free software that uses XLIFF as a translation system?

Spacewalk has xliff files. And Transifex can use load and export xliff files.

I've got a friend who wants a Linux job in a fun SysOp/DevOp/Team role in a small company in London. Does anyone know any recruiters who specialize in this kind of thing? Any hints for where to look? Thanks!

Should upstream release notes always be used in preference to the distro-supplied ones?

For xdg-app there is no "distro packager" writing release notes and so I think I'm going to have to start pushing my NEWS -> AppData initiative harder to get anything sensible or those applications.
I've been talking to various people about the update descriptions we show to the user. Without exception, the messages we show to end users are really bad. For example, the overly-complex-but-not-actually-useful: Screenshot from 2015-01-21 10:56:34. Or, the even more-to-the-point: ...

With a huge amount of support from +Alexander Larsson installing applications using xdg-app in GNOME Software is working. There are still a few rough edges, but it's getting there quickly now.

+Jeff Fortin Tam The MyPaint appdata file is incomplete and needs the <project_license> tag so we can correctly work out if it's nonfree. I've opened a bug with mypaint.

I'm in Brno, and finished my newest webapp on the plane. Can you guess what it does? Still WIP but the feature might just make it in time for Fedora 24.

xdg-app distribution hub and/or yet another review service?

This is GNOME Software running as an xdg-app installing, removing and updating other xdg-apps. No PackageKit in sight :)

There are a few to-be-reviewed patches heading upstream and then you need git master versions of basically everything but it seems to work pretty well. Lots more work to do, but we're getting there now.

Would application reviews be a good thing in GNOME Software? I'm pondering building a small web service for xdg-app but I'm worried about the comment review workflow. I'm perfectly able to approve comments in English, but I wouldn't know what to do with a comment written in German. I guess google translate could help get the basics.

I guess "mark this review as inappropriate" might be a way of solving this, although it does mean we're potentially showing the racist/sexist/crazy comment to the end user, which would be really bad PR and I'm guessing legally a no-go for some distros. Ideas welcome.

Frankly, I would fear the YouTube outcome, which would make them worse than useless.

Do any popular applications use the QM translation format? Does anybody know what the binary format of a .qm file is? I can see what looks like UTF-16 encoded translations, but I can't add a dep on Qt in the AppStream builder for reasons. Thanks!

Is it just me, or are .rpm files a really poor way of deploying and managing fonts?

What other way would you recommend to install and uninstall fonts?
