We are trying to do four weeks of different “pushes” in the four weeks around when the Shuttleworth/Drumbeat proposal is due. Each week’s push will be introduced by a blog post on the Drumbeat site.
Week 1 (October 10)
Translation Push: Translate the intro lesson into as many languages as possible
Goal: Have as many translations as we can get
Related bugs: copy page should suggest new URL,
Week 2 (October 17)
Picture Hunt: Find the best pictures for the most common conversation topic: the weather
Goal: Turn the weather lesson into the clearest lesson pictures can paint
Week 3 (October 24)
What is a flash card: Replace the pictures of an existing lesson on adjectives to better illustrate the lesson terms for you.
Goal: Have many forked versions of the same lesson.
Related bugs: better revert handling,
Week 4 (October 31) [During Drumbeat Barcelona festival]
Share your words: Create a lesson to teach others some of the special vocabulary from your daily life. Maybe it is the type of foods and furniture you use, or the environment you live in, or some special terms used at work.
Goal: Have many lessons of specialized vocabulary
Week 5 (?) (November 7)
Translate Ductus, the wiki engine that powers Wikiotics.
Goal: the user interface to Wikiotics should be available in as many languages as possible. The interface can be translated through transifex. After getting people involved with wikiotics.org for four weeks, we should ask our main contributors to help translate the site.
Related development work: mark as many strings as possible for translation
