Re: [Bug-gnubg] Road map

Hi Jon,

I totally agree that we should be close to 1.0 and that between the
two of us, we should be able to get the code in a reasonably good
state in a short time.

Where we will need help and where non-programmers can easily
contribute is in writing translations and updating the documentation.
The translations are the biggest problem. cs, it and de are largely
done. fr and ja are about 50% done. The rest are in a state where they
do more harm than good.

Also we simply need the code to be tested by more users under
different environments.

For these two things to happen I believe it might be a good idea to
call the current code 1.0-beta1 so that people can see that we are
close to 1.0 and committed to make only a few changes from here on.
