This has been discussed multiple times before here and on
fedora-websites list from a conversation initiated by me. Some
website administrations have joined the project as ambassadors,
translators etc but there is definitely more coordination required.
Ok. I will search the list then.

they should speak and so on. Or just a page that describes how local
forums can get more involved "at a whole forum", not as single
