[edit] The Fedora Localization Project - Introduce Yourself to the L10N Project

When a new writer/editor/maintainer/coordinator joins the Localization Project, we ask that he/she introduces themselves on the trans mailing list. To sign up for the list, visit trans list signup page. The primary purpose of this is to begin the process of building trust by learning about the translator, and downloading their GPG key.

The purpose of all this is to break anonymity and foster real-world community within the project. You are under no obligation to reveal personal secrets. The objective is to establish a level of trust with yourself and the other members of the project. Then tell us what you would want to know about yourself. :-)
