Dear all,

As I hope you are all aware, we are in the final phase of the Debian 11
'bullseye' release. This means that we also want to get the release
notes [1] for bullseye into shape and translated.

Following the process that I proposed and used during the buster
release, I propose the following, if people have time to help out:

* l10n-english could do a review of the current text of all chapters.
That said, there haven't been much textual changes since the buster
release and the changes outside of issues.dbk have already been
reviewed. issues.dbk, and maybe whats-new.dbk, will keep receiving
updates during the releasing process, so the other files make more sense
to check first. I hope all members that want to contribute to the review
of proposed changes can also subscribe to merge request notifications in
the salsa interface [2], such that proposals that don't go via the bts
still get the proper attention. Bug reports in the bts are sent to
debian-doc@lists.debian.org, so consider subscribing to that list (or to
the release-notes pseudo package) if you want to help drafting or
reviewing incoming texts.

* Translation teams can start making sure translations are up-to-date, I
suggest starting with the about.dbk, installing.dbk, old-stuff.dbk,
moreinfo.dbk and release-notes.dbk files. issues.dbk, and maybe
whats-new.dbk, will receive more updates to existing texts (depending on
the answer to the review timing question in the previous paragraph)
resulting in possible unnecessary churn on fuzzy strings in just
translated items. I hope that after two weeks, in principle only new
text will be added.

I have seen updates to translations flowing in already, so I understand
at least some teams have direct access. I *guess* I can grant other
teams access if they request it. Since the archive is maintained in git
changes can be submitted with merge requests. Filing bug reports in the
bts against the release-notes package remain a supported option as well.

Please don't hesitate to ask if you have questions or remarks.

Let's get ready for the release.
