Dear Chester and Aman,
I have added a "Translation Quick Start Guide" to the repository (I
should have reported to the fedora-docs-list before adding it... sorry
about it). Anyway, though the guide is still a draft, it contains the
essential information about how to translate software and documentation
for the Fedora project. I believe it would be useful if we can include
it in the L10N wiki page < http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/L10N/
We offer a chance for peer review, which is the best reason for telling
folks about your document
Aman, Chester, as you are the maintainers of the Fedora Localization
Project I would need your assistance to export the XML file to the wiki
(I believe making the html file is not enough).
I do not recommend moving content from XML to the Wiki. The Wiki serves
best for short documentation that is undergoing rapid change, and for
collaboration on draft or in-process documentation.
We are working on exposing the XML through the Wiki, so that the Wiki is
an editor, but this is not ready yet. Our goal for _all_ documentation
is to be in XML living in CVS. The Wiki is a step in the direction of
that goal. Once you have a document in XML, it is a step backward to
move it to the Wiki.
I recommend that you:
1. Build the document, assuming you used Fedora Docs tools 'make html'
should do fine.
2. Post the document to http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/quickstart-
The latter step is where snowlet or aalam can help best. The folks on
#fedora-websites can help with the permissions and process for posting
