This page gives explanation about the various freezes during Calligra release schedule
Release branches are always in feature freeze, meaning no new features are allowed to be added. What constitutes a feature is not closely defined. Discuss with othe developers in case of doubt.
Likewise (to be nice to translations teams) it is not allowed to add new strings or change existing strings to an application. But there are exceptions:
- strings that already appear in the UI, but were not translated because of a lack of i18n, or an extraction problem; in this case it is allowed to fix the extraction and/or add i18n
- errors in the string such as typographic errors can be fixed as well
But each time a string is changed, the translation teams need to be warned about it, the best way to do this is to add "CCMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org" in the commit message. No need to warn translation team when removing a string.
For reference see Fedora project definition of string freezes.
Translations in Calligra are split in different files, one for each module (a.k.a applications, libraries and plugins).
If a string is used in a module, it can be reused inside the same module. For instance, a string used in Stage can't be used in Words, but can be used in various places in Stage.
