localization is definitely a priority at TDF, so apologies if a wrong impression was created here. We are glad that with LibreOffice available in so many languages, we as a community make it possible for many people to use free and open source software. We are proud of and thankful for all the localizers, and it is one of our priorities to enable people to make good contributions and have a welcoming environment.

it is encouraging to see so explicitely expressed support:)

Indeed, we are more belated with the Weblate project than we have hoped. The truth is, we were going through some demanding times the past months which unfortunately delayed some of the projects as well, but the hope is indeed that the overall situation will improve significantly in 2023.

Aologies that also Weblate was affected from some of the delays - it's owed to the demanding situation we were dealing with. Localization is one of the key things that makes our community an international one, and it's important to us.

Before Christmas, we have worked with the Weblate people to finalize deliverables and some contractual details and I expect last bits clarified and work to start very soon now.

These are great news, I hoped for such an answer - so I am looking forward!

I used the opportunity to also talk about Weblate during today's team call, given there are reports about issues again. Just to confirm, the best way to report issues is the l10n list, alternatively Redmine. Now that the Christmas break is over, more people should be following the mailing list again, and we are currently looking into the problems. Some of them seem to be not reliably reproducible from what I heard, which make them harder to chase, but we are looking into things right now, as we understand it's a growing issue.

Christian also mentioned the latest Weblate release promises performance upgrades, and he will have a look in deploying that soon.

To be honest, I feel that every my report to the list is lost sooner or later. That's why I started to put them also to Redmine, maybe it is easier to track them there.

(Just for illustration, I checked that I reported/confirmed 5 issues in the list during the last year, quite reproducible, all with no resolution.)

I hope that helps to answer the question. In summary, the past months took their toll from everyone, and that unfortunately also delayed some things, but we're all working hard to get back on track.

It definitely helps, thanks for your reply, it is appreciated!
