We are looking for a new Ubuntu Budgie team member who can use their current Ubuntu Budgie user expertise to benefit all of our non-native english speaking community.
Principally we are looking for an enthusiastic developer who can spend a few hours a week and
- is proficient in any computer language and who is willing to learn python & vala to make very small changes to ensure all things “budgie” are localised rather than English-centric
- is proficient with git (gitlab/github accounts) who knows about forking, creating quality merge requests, git-patches, branches etc.; must be happy to work with various upstream projects
- has experience with creating bash scripts to automate their work
- has experience/knowledge of how translations managed in projects i.e. pot files, po files, GNU text utilities (msgfmt, msgcat, msgmerge, xgettext, intltool-extract etc.) to extract, merge and manipulate translations
Such a person should be proficient in both speaking and writing in english and can read and write in another language. <-- you’ll need this to test your good work!
All work will eventually be Debian packaged - so if you have all the above qualities and want to learn about including your efforts in a .deb, building and uploading to launchpad we want you now!
Direct message me - let me know a little bit about yourself and your opensource journey (what projects and involvement etc) and how you meet the above.thx.
