FLP Infrastructure to Move to Transifex.net

Members of the FLP, Fedora Infrastructure, Fedora Project Leader Jared Smith and Paul Frields met on 15th February 2011[1] to discuss about the proposal to move the Fedora Translation infrastructure to Transifex.net. It was unanimously accepted that the current infrastructure cannot be maintained at present due to the lack of administrative resources and the move to Transifex.net accepted. Further meetings with the other affected groups - Fedora Devel, Fedora Documentation team have also been scheduled. Dimitris Glezos would be leading the migration effort[2] with other members of the FLP pitching in for the additional tasks[3].

The migration has been marked as a major priority to be put in place for Fedora 15 Translation. As the string freeze date coincided with the meeting date, there are fears that the translation time may be reduced for the translators.

Concerns were also raised by several members. FLSCo member Noriko and Runa suggested that an exit plan be also put in place to keep open the option to host the infrastructure on Fedora Servers again in future.

Full meeting log is here[4].
