    As indicated yesterday, the fixed G1 Kit is finally available today.
    Here is an official statement from IBM DACH about what happened in detail.

    This post explains in more detail why we had to wait for the G1 version and what happened in the background.

    I google translated the essential part of the text for our none German speaking yellow bleeding community below and checked that the text still makes sense.

    Obviously HCL had bigger challenges than my simple auto translate from on the road.

    Software translation packages are centralized at IBM. However, none of the persons involved in the development partnership went to HCL and HCL had to re-establish the topic. Just to remind you: HCL has not only taken over almost all ICS / Lotus / Iris developers in the Boston area (USA), but has also created more than 150 new jobs. First goal of the assumption of the then ex-IBMer was of course to minimize skill losses.


    And that was the problem with the language packs. There was no skill transfer here and the new colleagues probably underestimated the topic a bit. In any case, some IBM Champions discovered very early that there were problems with the first release of Language Pack 1. IBM / HCL then withdrew it very quickly in order to do no harm to the customers. The problem immediately received tremendous attention in the development team, but also in the management. It quickly became clear that the roots of some of the problems were already in the older versions, but nobody really noticed them there. So you had to do more than just exchange a few words.


    This has taken a few weeks, but it is also thanks to the support of some champions who have helped testing, certainly the best quality language package 1 for a long time. And the high attention paid to the management problem has also highlighted the fundamental importance of these packages. For this reason, Richard Jefts, the responsible general manager at HCL, has also announced that in the future HCL will always deliver the language pack 1 together with the original English release and not some 90 days later. I think that the problem has had something good, too - and it shows that HCL as a modern organization also learns quickly.
