Team,

For those who do not follow all the activities in the Bugzilla bugs, I
want to summarize a few fixes and enhancements we have recently.

Babel Pseudo Translations Language Packs
========================================
We've implemented a new "Babel Pseudo Translation Language Packs" (see bug
217339). The Babel Pseudo Translations Language Packs can
help:

- identify hard-coded strings; a string is hard-coded if it does not have
the special prefix
- the added length to the strings can help identify layout problems; for
example, after adding "eclipse123456:" to "OK", a button label is truncated
- identify the component the string is coming from; is the string from
Eclipse Platform or from my component?
- locate the file containing the string; there are probably a dozen copies
of the strings "File" or "OK". If you want to locate a particular one to
fix the translation, you just have to look up the prefix number from an
index file.

New Babel Update Site
=====================
- We reorganized the Babel Update Site to list language packs by language.
- In each language category, language packs for each project are listed.
- There is also a percentage of translation completeness in the
description.
- User may pick and choose the language packs to install.

Babel Language Pack Links Page
==============================
- During the generation of language packs for the update site, we are
creating the downloadable language packs at the same time.

These few fixes and enhancements have been released to CVS, but not
deployed to the staging/live servers yet. We will apply the fixes to the
staging server very soon. Please give us feedbacks.

Thanks,
