"After the highly successful Graphics Test Week last week (thanks to everyone who came out! A full recap will be posted soon), it's another Test Week this week: this time for internationalization and localization. This is a hugely important area (the majority of Fedora users pick something other than English with a US keyboard layout) which we don't always test very comprehensively, so I'd like to say a huge 'thanks!' to Rui He, Igor Soares, and Aman Alam for their hard work in putting together these events.

"The first Test Day, running tomorrow (Tuesday 2011-03-01), will be on translation and internationalization support in Anaconda (the Fedora installer). We'll be trying to weed out all those cases where translations and localization (particularly keyboard layouts and fonts) cause issues in the installer that are not encountered when testing the default, boring, US English path."
