== Sugar Digest ==

1. Google Code In update: After the first two weeks, we have 33
participants and almost 140 tasks completed. The pace is faster than
in years past, perhaps because we have more experienced Sugar users
each year. You can follow the action (the contest runs for five more
weeks) at [1].

At the current pace, almost 500 tasks will have been completed by the
end of the contest. If you have project ideas, please let me (or any
of the other mentors) know. We can continue to add new tasks
throughout the contest. Tasks include coding, but also documentation,
quality assurance, outreach, etc.

2. We continue to make progress on Turtle Blocks JS (the Javascript
version of Turtle Blocks). There have been many new contributions from
participants in Google Code In and in generally, the code is
approaching a point of stability. You can try it by visiting [2] or by
downloading the activity locally from [3]. Any and all comments,
feedback, bug reports, merge requests, and suggestions welcome.

3. Martin Abente has been working on new translation platform,
including a new Pootle instance. He has been adding repositories there
so translators can start working. If you are interested in having your
project included in the new platform, please follow these
# If you still use our old Gitorious repository, please move your
projects to Github. Gitorious is considered read-only now. (See [4]
for details about how to move projects.)
# Update this [5] wiki page so we can track your project's repository.
# Be sure to grant commit access to [6] the Sugar Labs Github Pootle user.
# Create a new user on the new translation platform ([7]).
# Please send an email to Martin (CC'ing sugar-devel) with a list of
the repositories for your projects so that he can add them to Pootle.
Don't forget to specify your user name on the translation platform.

4. The final phase of the run up the the Sugar 0.104 release is
testing and bug fixing. Martin has released tarballs for our
(UNSTABLE) feature-freeze release, which can be downloaded from:
* sugar [8]
* sugar-artwork [9]
* sugar-datastore [10]
* sugar-runner [11]
* sugar-toolkit [12]

We welcome all the help you can provide testing and fixing bugs!
