Now in master! new homepage of www.debian.org (publish date today)
Thanks for all the reviews and translations!
We have merged the new-homepage branch into master and deleted it, so if
you have more updates, please work in master as usual, from now on.
The new homepage is ready in 15 languages (Thanks!) and many of them
also have updated the other related files:
Arabic, Armenian, Bulgarian, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, French, German,
Greek, Italian, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish.
I have synced the translations that were old, as much as I could.
I have also updated now all the .po templates (a new homepage.*.po file
will appear in the languages that didn't translated it yet).
So to continue translating the website, just do
git checkout master
I've done a partial build for the final review, you can have a look at
We'll publish in 1-2h if we don't see any big issue (for now, everything
IMPORTANT: The translations of the homepage (and affected files) that
still use the old layout will be removed, so people don't get confused
to see so much difference depending on the language visited. This
affects these languages:
But I'll do my best to help any translator/team that wants to catch up,
don't hesitate to contact!
