Name: Lucas Landim
Location: SP, Brazil
Profession: Unix Support Analyst
About me: I work with mission critical servers like RHEL, Solaris and AIX.
I have learned Linux at high school sometime in 2005 using Conectiva and
Kurumin Linux. I have contributed in some projects like PABX IP Meucci,
Elastix, Trixbox, Vero LibreOffice spell checker and the translation of
Freepbx to Brazilian portuguese.
Me and the Fedora project: Actually I belong to freemedia team, I always
distribute Linux CDs to my friends and co-workers... People always borrow
CDs and never give them back... so I've decided to give them instead of
lending. I have just one condiction: to share the media and help new users!
It's very cool to see that one person that you've "converted to the dark
side" convert other people as well and it spread Linux like a virus!
Nowadays I would like to help to translate Fedora too :)

Maybe it was mentioned before but are we really going to migrate to Zanata
before F21 release?
I saw the high level schedule on Wiki.
As a lot of new things and changes coming to F21, I'm kind of hoping not
rushing migration before F21.
Just play safe, we can start migration afterwards.
Here are my concerns to migrate to Zanata BEFORE F21 release:
1. Infra and Web team will probably be busy to support the changes in
Fedora.next. In case of anything wrong with Zanata migration, we may not
have enough hands to help.
2. I don't have concrete number but it would be safe to assume that current
users of Fedora Transifex Hub are significantly larger than public Zanata
instance. We don't know how Zanata would cope with such a high demands
during F21 translation window. Giving now it was powered by OpenShift, in
theory it shouldn't be a problem to scale up. But hey, we'd better be
3. So far this message is only relayed to few translation mailing lists and
the talk with Zanata team is just started. And the season of translating
will start next Monday! :) Not much time for us to come up a tangible
Nevertheless, it's not like Transifex will going to charge us a large $$$
or shut us off. Thus really no need to rush things down before F21.
We can make it a phase-by-phase plan. The last thing I would want to see is
a surprise during migration cause loss of precious history or credit. Shall
we take the opportunity of FLOCK to discuss this more thoroughly?
Since we have never rejected a CC-licensed PhotoShop-ed wallpaper contest
submission, or a PO translation edited by TextMate, Transifex going
proprietary shouldn't post a threat to our 4Fs IMHO. I'm also supporting
mitigation to Zanata if it can bring us better integration with FAS and
more streamlined translation workflow.

Take a Deep Breath out of Windows
I believe that migration will occur was created a plan , but I
believe the others in CC's will provide you with more precise information
about where this running this current instance of Zanata , I only
realized in the production url he suffered an update to its latest version.

My name is Pablo Wagner and I would like to participate in the L10N Fedora
Project, since I'm having a bit of extra time. I am from Argentina.
My FAS login name is "pablow" without quotes.
The language I'm willing to assist in is Spanish.
I'm currently a university student, Physics, Professor Grade.
I was trying to assist a friend with a Fedora Installation, he doesn't know a
thing about English, so I've realised that it would be nice to have all the
documentation available in Spanish; sure I'll reduce the burden with new
potential users and community members.
My current knowledge about computers include basic administration, some of
programming (I've studied two years of Information System Engineering Grade,
I've had to drop out). But I think I can invest my time better in helping with
the L10N Fedora project.
Since I'm new with all these stuff (I'm referring to contributing in a
community) I'm asking for a bit of patience if I have to learn anything new
about the work-flow. That being said, I think it's pretty easy to use
No more I could say about me besides what I've already said, but feel free to
ask any question and I'll to answer in the best way.

Thanks for your time.
Seeing the main Guide L10N(https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/L10N/Guide)
our main guide, found some broken links, I made one new version the whole
process and more adjusts in some parts to help new contributors. The team
that I'm the coordinator will now to translate this, suggestions,
comments, criticisms are welcome.
