@alistair3149 -

We've accepted the Github request.

  1. We'll be pushing translations to the master branch on Github.
  2. We're going to be using the following project icon on translatewiki - https://translatewiki.net/wiki/File:Starcitizen-logo.svg
  3. New translations are pushed out twice a week. How often do you release / deploy a new version of the skin?

@abi_

  1. Sounds awesome.
  2. What's the use of an icon? Since it's a MediaWiki skin I'm unsure what does an icon do for it.
  3. The skin is updated continuously in the master branch. Though almost all of the updates do not affect messages. I try to rely on existing Mediawiki messages as much as possible.

@alistair3149 ,

  1. The skin is just good to have and may give translators some additional info about the project. Currently the skin is used on the project page and the group selector for example -
  2. How often are changes from master deployed to the production server? We don't want translations pushed out from translatewiki to sit idle without being used for long periods of time.

@abi_ The skin has a master release policy and since it is a MW skin, it is up to the individual wikis to choose when they update their production. On production for Star Citizen Wiki might take weeks to months, while on other independent wikis can update bi-weekly, and weekly usually for Miraheze.

It also depends if the wiki needs to have up-to-date translations, naturally if a wiki is using MLEB then they would be updating more often, but if the wiki is only a single language one then they might decide not to update until there are larger feature and bugfix updates.

I think this is setup well and can be marked as done.
