Happy new year to all! This could very well be the big year of the Drupal 8.0 release if we are diligent enough. Here is a new year's resolution tip: I'll help Drupal 8 more to further my career and contribute to the community.
How better to start that than getting down to work with the multilingual initiative? Get more background at http://www.drupal8multilingual.org/ and follow https://twitter.com/d8mi. It was never this easy to follow our upcoming events, issues in progress or have an overview of the people involved. We want to make it even easier to join the team, so look out for more improvements on the site soon.
We have made some great progress late last year with most of the localization update functionality now built into core and a new amazing setup screen included for entity/field translation and entity language setup in general. However, there are lots to do still. We have a mounting set of issues for configuration language support still undecided (despite several patches on various tracks) and entity properties still needing multilingual conversions. See http://www.drupal8multilingual.org/issues/focus for an overview of current issues.
In short, we have lots to cover and clean up in 2013 as well. Come be involved, ask questions, get going! We have tasks for all kinds of interests on all kinds of difficulty levels.
See you all there!
Meetings are every other week at the same time on Wednesdays. Check out http://www.drupal8multilingual.org/events for the calendar of upcoming meetings.
