I was worried there for a moment, but Davyd Madeley and Bob Kashani really pulled it off in the end. The GNOME 2.14 release notes are well done and have been translated into a heap of languages. They’ve been very well received, creating a nice warm glow around the 2.14 release. It’s a lot of work, requiring quite a bit of research, dealing with a lot of feedback, keeping everyone happy.
So make sure you thank them (and your local translators) today, with as much energy as you’d be complaining if those release notes didn’t exist. The release notes don’t just write themselves.
Now that they’ve got the basics down, I look forward to them taking bold new steps for 2.16.
