Re: please let me translate KiCad more directly (Was: Version 6 release schedule)


Hi Marco-

The largest concern is that this requires us to remove the language from
Weblate.  This will limit our community of Italian translators (such as it
is) and so we become very dependent on you for up-to-date translations.  If
you ever need to step back from KiCad for a few months or longer, you would
please let us know so that we can re-enable the Weblate Italian

If you are up for this, please let me know off-list and I'll connect you
with the required information.
