Hello Tammy, Paul and all doc writters and translators.
First and foremost I wish to say that I'd never participated before of
any projects of this kind or even had any role on the RH community
whatsoever, but I am very willing to help and its never late to start,
so I'll add some cents in this to get the discussion going. Feel free to
hammer my feelings if you feel like it, I can bear it as long as its
good for the FC.

The same location has its advantages, but as long as we're talking
about diferent trees, so no translator would have write access to a
writer's doc and accidentally do some nasty thing. I know the cvs can be
"rewinded", but taking vacines is better than antibiotics, isnt it?
Etc. or the code for each language.
I am not a CVS expert, and my desk is buried in 3 feet of crap, so what

Posting these tools on Translations Project on fedora.redhat.com with
some, even if small, tutorial/quick guide/tips thingie would be a start,

hmm... The docs list?
Something that bothers me a lil more than this is actually defining
who's onto what. It would be a waste if 2 ppl get the same doc to
translate to the same language, without knowing of each others effort.
We gotta define something about that.
Well, lets evolve this into a nice organized multi-cultural project!
