Anaconda l10n/i18n test day review

Last Thursday we had our test day regarding translations and keyboard support in Anaconda and we manage to file a lot of bugs. The participants ran tests for a sort of different languages with different input characteristics. I am glad that the test cases we improved for this release cycle were useful to diagnose some bugs earlier than before, so translators and developers have more time to work on them. It was rewarding to see folks from around the globe stopping by to run tests and report their findings.  Although the test day is over, you can continue to test, file bugs and post results in the wiki. I would like to see tests from users who use Cyrillic and Arabic alphabets. If you use Fedora and have a keyboard of those types you still can help us.

Here is a list of bugs filed during the test day:

634385 NEW  – Multiple placeholders within one string in anaconda.po
635042 NEW  – [minor, i18n] “Cancel” button is not translated in various dialogs

Now it is time to help on the resolution of those bugs in order to provide a high quality internationalization support for our global community.
