Ämne: [Wikitech-ambassadors] Translations on hold until further notice


tl;dr: Please refrain from adding new strings that require translations

to MediaWiki and deployed extensions until further notice.


Due to changes we are making in the way our translation systems process

data we will be temporarily disabling the auto deployment of newly

translated content until further notice.  The goal of these changes will

be to improve the evaluation of content submitted to our translation



This means developers should not merge new translatable strings into

MediaWiki Core nor Wikimedia deployed extensions until we re-enable the

system. This is to prevent longer term issues where local wiki admins

overwrite a string and thus prevent updates from new and improved



We apologize for any inconvenience this delay in service may cause and

will alert you as soon as this maintenance is completed.
