Please read that mail once again, this was a response by Platonides(not an i18n team member) to the comment by Srikanth L . Srikanth said: " If people are not interested to join them, they must be forced to join > them(by way of not supporting them/ deploying any component for the > language) so as to provide better support." And now you are saying that it is the attitude of i18n and calling it dangerous and unprofessional! Wonderful Ravishankar. >. Nothing that breaks > horrible must ever be deployed. We safeguarded Tamil(Malayalam folks did > theirs too), we frankly didnt care much for others before the launch. Srikanth, While I really appreciate the efforts you and Bala did with the testing and reporting bugs, this kind of comments really disappoint us. You are aware that the we were working round the clock to fix all the bugs within hours and we wrote the complete details in report. Safeguarding from a horrible deployment? Could you please stop exaggerating things? We did expect bugs when we do this kind of large scale deployment with too many languages, browsers, operating systems and we addressed each of the bugs within hours. Some of these bugs can be only detected when we expose the tool to a larger audience. You are aware of that. All the open bugs now present are are not in our control - Browser bugs and Fonts bug, we disabled them for time being. Please be constructive and help us as you were doing. We deserve some appreciation for what we are doing. -Santhosh _______________________________________________ Wikimediaindia-l mailing list Wikimediaindiafirstname.lastname@example.org To unsubscribe from the list / change mailing preferences visit https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediaindia-l
