[OpenStack-I18n] [I18n] Horizon and Horizon plugins: StringFreeze policies for translation

Hello OpenStack developers!

My name is Ian and I am now serving I18n PTL for Ocata cycle.

For previous releases, I18n team set higher priorities for translations 
on Horizon and Horizon plugins
during Soft and Hard StringFreezes to include user-faced translated 
strings as much as possible within releases.

On the other hand, since Ocata cycle is a little bit short, on the last 
I18n IRC meeting,
I18n team decided to start translations from now although some Horizon 
and Horizon plugin projects might
have not freezed all the strings (Soft StringFreeze) yet.
If some projects still have more strings to be freezed, please tell me 
through this thread and/or call me (@ianychoi)
on #openstack-18n channel.

Also, since just one week during Soft & Hard Freeze is too short for 
translators to complete translating and reviewing strings,
some translation contribution might be after RC1.
I18n team would like to do translations by R-2 week (Feb 06 - Feb 10), 
and I hope that all translations
will be successfully included into releases by RC2 and further 
intermediary / final RCs.

I do not expect a worse situation: for instance, there will be more 
translation in a project during R-2 week
but no further releases will be packed in the corresponding project.

Also, it seems that 
https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/CrossProjectLiaisons#I18n is out of date.
Please fill out liaison information or I would like to ask about I18n 
liaisons later through PTLs :)

With many thanks,

Dear language coordinators & translators!

Only four weeks left before Ocata release [1] and I would like to inform 
you that Soft StringFreeze period has come.

Language teams need to focus on Horizon and Horizon-related projects
before all translated strings will be packaged for upcoming release.

According to the dashboard on https://translate.openstack.org, our 
targeted priorities look as follows:

- Dashboard - Horizon (High)
- Dashboard Authorization Page (High)
- neutron-lbaas-dashboard (High)
- Trove Dashboard (Medium)
- Sahara Dashboard (Medium)
- Murano Dashboard (Low)
- Magnum UI (Low)
- Designate Dashboard (Low)

All of those and more additional target projects grouped in [2] in 
*master* branch
and PTL (@ianychoi) will check feature freeze status on projects listed 
He will create a stable version: *stable-ocata* in Zanata for the target 
projects this week.

Although the stable version has not been created yet, but it is highly 
encouraged to translate those projects from now, since StringFreeze 
periods are relatively short during Ocata cycle.

If you have questions, feel free to ask through 
openstack-i18n at lists.openstack.org 
<mailto:openstack-i18n at lists.openstack.org> mailing list or ask  I18n 
members on Freenode #openstack-i18n channel.

Thank you all for your contribution!
