We are just back from a fantastic and extensive sprint at DrupalCon Portland! We got multilingual node properties in core now, have been improving the config translation module proposed for core in terms of usability and accessibility; and found important core bugs on the way. We also made menus use bundles which will enable us to add easy to use language settings on them shortly.
These are amazing things, and we have a lot to be proud of that we are here, however, we still want to build more on these patches. We still need all hands available to finish multilingual properties for other entity types in core, improve accessibility, fix core bugs and get the configuration translation user interface in. We should also think about the missing Drupal 8 related features on localize.drupal.org at this point.
We have tasks for all kinds of interests on all kinds of difficulty levels. All help is welcome! We are moving back to a weekly meeting schedule for the remaining 5 weeks, starting from today, so we can reevaluate our standing and focus our efforts best. Our last meeting will be in Dublin and attempt to join in everyone remotely over IRC at a minimum for the meeting time.
Meetings are now every week at the same time on Wednesdays. Check out http://www.drupal8multilingual.org/events for the calendar of upcoming meetings.
