The next milestone for Drupal 8's life is a possible beta release hopefully not much later this year. For the beta release, issues to focus for the Drupal 8 Multilingual Initiative are:
- The configuration translation module that we are working on which has no hope whatsoever to get in once we are in betas (but no majors and criticals should be expected as followups or it will be rolled back)
- Issues related to the upgrade path (tag more with "upgrade path" + "sprint" as appropriate)
- Issues that need to make API changes in core (tag issues with "API change" + "sprint" as appropriate; the API should be relatively stable in beta releases)
We have tasks for all kinds of interests on all kinds of difficulty levels! All help is welcome!
Meetings are every other week at the same time on Wednesdays. Check out http://www.drupal8multilingual.org/events for the calendar of upcoming meetings.
