I am sure, most of the people working with Fedora I18N, L10N from 5-6
year must be aware regarding Fedora L10N Steering Committee.  As far
as i know this committee was active around 2009 and very effective.
During Fedora G11N activity day discussions, we again felt there is
need for some kind of official committee to drive Fedora Globalization
activities. Fedora is growing faster with number of different domains
and G11N also need to adapt those changes quickly to remain on the track.
For this purpose and in line with , we were thinking of Fedora
Globalization steering committee. I have created initial proposal for
Its open for feedback, please feel free to share other active members,
discuss in your respective language groups. This is just initial
proposal and i am sure, we can improve and make it more effective with
I have looked through devel team schedule closer, and decided to propose
the move of all software translation related events rather than the add
another translation deadline, to minimize the impact to devel and
Rel-Eng teams. However I only have translator's view and not
developer's. If you think this is impossible with some reason, let me
know. Also it is much appreciated any input.
$subject. Two problems:
1. There is chance of FAS user can create account with different username
and it will affect our plan to connect with FedBus and generate stats.
2. Was talking with CLA agreement with Zanata guys earlier. They said
rather than they work on signing agreement from users, they want user
simply sign CLA of different project i.e. Fedora, OepnStack and they will
simply connect users to respective project portal. In this case no need to
sign other terms of Zanata (please correct me here if i am wrong). I mean
just user can simply log in and start work.
Most of you might have seen it earlier. I thought its possible to get
rid of this and created ticket against Fedora Infra. 
Looks like there is method/way already. Will be very nice if we can
improvement it. Will be very nice if Zanata team works with puiterwijk and
fix it soon.
I’m glad to finally share the results from the survey many of you helped
with back in October.
It’s been a great help to understand what is needed by this community. I
hope this gives you some insight into how we are thinking about the
upcoming design & development of Zanata.
We always welcome more Feedback. The post shares how best to share any new
feedback you have.

From your earlier reply, I thought you are asking for some external
links with definition. :)

Please mention those problems. I think that will be good start to Form
translation group as suggested by Zoltan in earlier reply.
I would love to participate as a member of this group with you all :)

Please, its not only me.
Rather the whole active group present At FAD thought there is need of
FG governance group. We have created this proposal in Globalization
FAD itself. 
I am just opening up this for wider group for suggestion and feedback.
Positive/Negative feedback are welcome. I think this is way we can
learn and improve further.
Again will be very helpful, if you can draft problems you think
presently open somewhere or mention in mailing list itself with other

As all we know, we had successful and memorable first G11N FAD 2015 in
Tokyo between 1st to 3rd November. It was already a month ago, but just
thought that it might be good to share the summary report what I
discussed with others and some achievement for mainly Localization.
I also like to attach the overall summary prepared by Jens  and the
stsatus presentation slide for L10N and FLTG prepared by Ani , thanks
We, l10n, fltg, i18n, zanata, all got together and presented the status
each other. During hackathon, I have worked and created 'G11N'
presentation slide with other members. This will be available on G11N
wiki page. In the evening, we also had hangout talk and shared ideas
with Cambodian team joining FAD online.
In the morning, we all had hangout talk and shared ideas with Fedora
Project Leader, Matthew. As part of hackaton, I have joined the
discussion about new FGSCo structure proposal to strengthen our team as
one G11N. Then I joined the hackathon of recent zanata survey feedback
analysis. It was fun and fruitful dinner gathering at the end.
L10N team and FLTG discussed to determine important packages to
localize, giving priority. So that translators can easily find which
package to start without asking around. The deprecated packages list has
also been updated. In order to achieve this, we had a lot of help from
I18N team members as well. I have had proposed 'software deadline change
for F24' and discussed with others. We arrived the consensus no-go for
this proposal, instead I18N members will start seeking and developing a
script to auto-detect string breaks. L10N members will monitor the
breaks closer and produce statistics.
As future F24 planning, we L10N members aim to hold more local
