I just noticed this forum exists, sorry. I'll move the relevant strings to the properties files.
Also, is it considered inapprpropriate when I update the extension with a new XPI even though I haven't released? Because I see all the translations as having gone away - you don't actually have to do the whole work again right?
PS - In case this forum doesn't send email notifications of replies - I'm at firstname.lastname@example.org
The tutorial for updating an extension can be found here
, along with a whole bunch of other useful Q&A.
BZ has no version connection with official releases, so you are free to update your extension (consider it a beta). Just make sure that you include all previous work in it (you don't have to add any new strings to the other locales, they will be added by the WTS). Once you have posted here you should get an email for the posts made here - if you haven't disabled that of course.
