no translation project have started.
I think that now the fedora project is more open to community, it's time to

says about Fedore Core:
Users: Early adopters, enthusiasts, developers
How big a percentage of the above-mentioned user group does not speak
Note that it's about being able to read/speak/write English, it has
nothing to do with "US" or not.
My personal belief is that most of the internationalization efforts are of
very low priority for that particular user group. There are more pressing
issues to handle (such as, making it possible to get external
contributions on packages etc. to Fedora, getting the infrastructure ready
all in all, etc.) first.
