We had planned to update auth.opensolaris.org this week, but Alan and
Martin finished this phase of the work early and deployed the upgrade
last Friday. It's always cool to get something done, tested, and out
the door early
. This latest version of auth.opensolaris.org
offers the following changes:
- New public information screens displaying much more detail about
user, collective, and governance relationships (these screens will be
accessible via each XWiki Collective in the near future as well).
- The ability to download the data from the public info screens in multiple formats.
- New screens in each private user account displaying summary data from all the user's relationships with start and end dates.
- The addition of eight languages (so Auth is now localized into 25 languages).
- Some miscellaneous bug fixes and probably some stuff I missed.
Also, some of the elements on the auth.opensolaris.org page (headers
and footers, basically) are now dawn via a new web service that has
also been localized, so as we integrate all of the subsites
with auth.opensolaris.org we'll start to layer a common look/feel
across the entire site. This will take some time and come together in
pieces, but the latest step is encouraging. Also, when the new SCM
Console at repo.opensolaris.org is deployed, it will be localized as
well (the first set of localizations is already done). Please note that
all of these content localizations are contributions from the i18n/l10n community
so people from around the world are directly helping evolve the site.
If the community didn't contribute this work, the site would be in one
language: English. So, these contributions are huge. Here's how to contribute site localizations
And finally there has been a bit of confusion on some lists recently
about how the community is organized and the various roles/rights
people have on the site. If anyone has any questions, please read the Roles & Collectives
document first. It's the only document on the site that explains all
the roles and all
the collectives and all
of the website and governance privileges. Send questions to website-discuss.
