It seems we haven't been to paying enough attention to which string IDs add-ons use. So for new add-ons will be paying more close attention and ask the authors to stay within the defined range before accepting.
- strings 30000 thru 30999 reserved for plugins and plugin settings
- strings 31000 thru 31999 reserved for skins
- strings 32000 thru 32999 reserved for scripts
- strings 33000 thru 33999 reserved for common strings used in add-ons
For add-ons already available we would like to ask kindly if possible to update the usage of the used string IDs within these defined ranges (or at least anywhere between 30000 and 33999)
If you you already have your add-on added to transifex it should be possible to transfer current translations to the new range.
Here's current list of add-ons in repo that are outside the defined range:
If you are using skin xml files that may also be shipped within skins you need temporary keep the old ID to prevent breaking current skins that still have the xml files with the old ids. Just having the English ones should suffice. After this request the skinner to update the files accordingly.
