Hi, there were a few grammar errors in that draft (I mostly was inserting
"have" in various sentences), I have made corrections below. I can just
send a corrected draft if that would be easier.
Thanks for the corrections, Hardy. I'm attaching your version below (I
removed the email quotes and fixed broken formatting of URLs). I'll
wait until morning in case someone has any more suggestions, then I'll

Subject: DSpace 3.0 Test-A-Thon, 2nd round & Call for Translations
We thank you all for your great feedback during the first round of the
DSpace 3.0 Test-A-Thon! You have helped discover many bugs, some of which
we have already fixed. Since we have so many great new features in 3.0, we
decided to give it another round of public testing to help make it to the
final 3.0 release without any significant bugs.
The community has requested advance notice of testathons, so that you can
make some time in your
calendars for testing. Therefore we have scheduled the second round of
testathon to officially start on November 5. But
been updated today with bugfixes we managed to make so far, so
feel free to test at any time! If you find that a bug has already been
reported, there's no need to report it again, we're probably still
working on it. If the bug is marked as fixed, please do test if the
fix works as expected!
I'd like to draw your attention especially to the new theme for mobile
devices, which wasn't enabled in the first testathon on demo. It's
still a beta and requires some extra steps to enable it in your
installation (adding a "mobile." domain), so there are still some
lacking features. There's a "View mobile theme (beta)" in page footer
to switch to the mobile version and "View full website" to switch back to
the regular version from the mobile home page. Here's a direct link,
too . Please, show it some love and report bugs and ideas to Jira
as usual. Don't forget to mention what kind of device you're using to

== Call for Translations ==
This is also the time to send us your translations of DSpace 3.0
(Messages_xx.properties and messages_xx.xml files). Both new and
updated translations are welcome. When updating translations, please
try to contact the previous translator first to avoid possible
duplication of work.
You may send translations at any time, but to make them easily
available to others via the DSpace build process, try to send them
before the 3.0 release date, currently scheduled for November 15.
To send a translation, register/log in to Jira , file a new issue
(e.g. "Updated French translation") and attach the files to that
