The GetGNULinux project source code has been moved to a different version control system and code hosting service. When I started managing this project I used Bazaar for version control and Launchpad for project hosting. During my internship last summer I started using Git for version control because I heard good things about it. It didn’t take long before I was sold, partly because the book Pro Git by Scott Chacon was a delight to read and easy to understand. I soon started converting my personal Bazaar repositories to Git (see Convert bzr to git by AstroFloyd for instructions).
I later converted getgnulinux’ repository to Git as well. You can check out the new project page at GitHub. From now on this is where you can find the source code, report bugs, and make suggestions for the website. Patches, suggestions, and comments are welcome.
The getgnulinux project had come to a halt for about 6 months due to my 5 months internship to which my focus was drawn. But the internship has come to a successful end in December 2012 and I have some spare time on my hands once again. So there is some catching up to do because the translators didn’t stop contributing to the project, for which I’m grateful. I’m pleased to announce that two more translations were completed:
- Many thanks to Bruno Bacelar, Ezequiel Santos, Higor, Julio Mario Jr., Nadia Stabile, Rafael Ferreira, and Tiago for they have helped realize the completion of the translation into Brazilian Portuguese back in July 2012.
- Also many thanks to Bastián Núñez, Emilio Sepúlveda, Gustavo Narea, Jonathan H. Fernández, Martín Carr, and Miguel L. García for helping translate the website into Spanish. The Spanish translation had been stuck at 66% for a long time, so I was very pleased when I got an email from Bastián Núñez on February 5th telling me that he was working to complete the Spanish translation. Sure enough, exactly 5 days later I got an email from Bastián saying that he completed the translation.
Other translations have undergone updates as well. These include Arabic (56%), German (53%), Finnish (13%), French (77%), Interlingua (30%), Italian (74%), and Russian (85%). And a new language was added: Lithuanian (28%). I can’t help but wonder which will finish next.
