The Google Code In is now over. I’d like to thank all of the students, and the Haiku mentors, 30 in all, for all their hard work. I’d also like to thank Google, the Melange team and Carol Smith for running GCI. Haiku had over 150 tasks completed by students!
Many of the tasks completed for Haiku were for translations. In all, there were about 65 translation tasks completed, nearly completing 12 different languages, and partial coverage on 7 more. One student, when we couldn’t find a mentor to cover the Romanian translations, went out and found a mentor, and then she proceeded to translate all of the apps and preflets that are in HTA, all while she was also doing tasks for several other orgs. In case anyone is interested in working on the translations there is still a lot of work left to do on some of the less common languages. If you are interested in helping out, join the Haiku-i18n mailing list. To work on the localization of the system, go to HTA, register and get started. To start a new translation team for the user guide, read Starting a new translation.
Haiku get's a couple of new screensavers, several new translators for many languages, and some more i18n'd applications and preferences thanks to GCI students.
