Fedora Translations major change: Projects being moved on 18/2
You are receiving this email as one of the 2300+ people who have contributed translations to Fedora, and previously, Red Hat Linux. Thanks to your work, Fedora can reach out to millions more people around the world!
Please continue reading, as we are changing some core bits that will affect your translation work.
Today all translatable Fedora projects will be moved away from the traditional 'i18n.redhat.com' server, and over to Fedora servers. This move is part of our effort to grow our community and open up our processes. It will help us increase the number of Fedora languages and their quality, and also lower the barrier of entry for new translators.
What does this mean for you?
To continue contributing translations you'll need to follow some steps to join the Fedora Localization Project. We're a cool bunch of people, working in language teams, and translating everything that has to do with Fedora. All information you need to know to continue working on Fedora translations can be found at:
If you have any questions about any step of the migration process, don't hesitate to drop by IRC on #fedora-l10n on the Freenode network, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and someone will jump right in to help you out. We're sorry that we can't move everyone automatically to the new system, but we are dedicated to helping each and every translator who has any difficulty with the process.
As of tomorrow, support for translations via the older system will be dropped, and you'll no longer need to send translations there. Our efforts will focus on improving the new architecture, constantly adding more projects for translation, creating new translation teams, and making it easier for you to contribute translations.
So, thanks for your work, for bearing with us on this long email, and for continuing contributing to Fedora.
