Hello Sophia

Glad you and others liked it.

The Foundation Manifesto includes "to an open and transparent
peer-reviewed software development process where technical excellence is

TDF will not spare efforts to appreciate all contributions by the
community. Lowering barriers to code contributions is critical to the
Foundation mission.

Breaking others work like builds and translation workflow is not what
exactly TDF values I hope...

And thanks for the patches. Much needed. All of them being reviewed and
tested by committers.

Patches adding spaces in a string for an index? Again I don't see how
adding a lot of work for contributors will help them to contribute. There are a lot of typo in the new help content that should be corrected before and not just pushed as is, expecting to be corrected by translators. Asking more and more to them will just push them away as it's already the case for several languages. Sorry but I'm really not happy by this dangerous move,
consequences are too high for the moment.

Kind regards
