jp.opensolaris.org

Very interesting. The traffic to the Japan portal -- http://jp.opensolaris.org -- has tripled this month. All the portals have experienced increases in traffic lately, and most are probably related to the launch of OpenSolaris 2008.05. But Japan seems to have popped a cork. Whatever the cause, it's encouraging to see. I'm anxious to get the new OpenSolaris web application in place so we can remove the current portals, which were always a temporary solution, and properly localize the content on the site with the language and country communities that have been gathering. Japanese and Spanish are now the hottest portals on the site. Update: I just checked the site stats and Japan is now the #2 country hitting all of opensolaris.org. Tokyo is the #2 city. So, it's not just the portal, it's the entire site that is grabbing some Japanese attention this month.

It would be interesting to know if OpenSolaris.org is also gaining more code contributions from these two language portal sites. Regardless of participation, it's nice to see that OpenSolaris continues to grow its adoption rate! :-)

Well, it certainly enables us to talk to more Japanese and Spanish people. :) That's quite clear, so as we talk more we build more community. Interacting across language barriers is very difficult, so that's why we are going to upgrade the site itself to make localization easier.
