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'm Carmen from Friesland, The Netherlands. I am currently working on
GNOME to make the GNOME desktop available in Esperanto. At the current
rate, GNOME 3.22 will have its core release (standard apps, core
libraries) completely translated into Esperanto, which I am fairly proud
Unfortunately, from the big distributions, only Debian (and its
derivatives) have Esperanto available as a choice out of the box. I
want to make sure that Fedora also gets that option.
Could someone give me a few steps in the right direction to get that
ball rolling? I imagine an Esperanto team must be created on Zanata
(which is why I have CC'd Michael Moroni, who is listed as coordinator
at <https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/L10N_Teams>;). I also imagine some
packages need adjusting.
I have some experience with RPM packaging from openSUSE's Build Service,
so I can probably do that just fine on my own, but I would really
appreciate if someone provided me with an overview of the core language
packages (or how to find such an overview). I imagine it would be okay
to just send a patch to those packages to enable/add Esperanto? Or is
this all done automatically? That truly would be magical.
A little bit about myself finally: I'm a free software advocate, avid
D&D player, software engineering student, FSFE volunteer, and a couple
of other things. You can find me at the FSFE booth at SFScon in
Bozen/Bolzano, 16 November.
Thanks and with kindness,
Join us on irc.freenode.net in #fedora-meeting-1 for the Fedora 29
Final Release Readiness meeting. This meeting will be held on Thursday,
2018-10-18 at 19:00 UTC.
We will meet to make sure we are coordinated and ready for the Final
release of Fedora 29. Please note that this meeting will be held even
if the release is delayed at the Go/No-Go meeting on the same day two
You may receive this message several times in order to open this
meeting to the teams and to raise awareness, so hopefully more team
representatives will come to this meeting. This meeting works best
when we have representatives from all of the teams.

I haven't contributed for years now but still checking several things.
The websites are building hourly (please check me Robert and Co if I
am wrong) and has been crashing for 73hours now.
Due to the Danish incorrect translation.
Can someone fix this?
msgfmt -c -o po/da.mo po/da.po
po/da.po:262: number of format specifications in 'msgid' and 'msgstr'
does not match
msgfmt: found 1 fatal error
The string is there at Zanata
Even Zanata mark this translation as bad but users don't know that it
fails our websites rebuild...
I dunno how to 0) mark as incorrect under Zanata, 1) get the username
who last translated.. I have just used the "reject translation" button
but don't know its real meaning...
@websites shouldn't we improve our Makefile to: "msgfmt -c " in order
to avoid the stacktrace (I might send you a patch :/) continue with
default po template for that broken language ? Or open a BZ ticket
against that team? Or send an email to the mailing list?
It just feel bad to be notified that websites build is broken without

We decided to have different repositories because Adam think it is more
convenient for his CI work and convinced me it will work fine ;)
As one repository for all translation file would create multiple issues,
we decided to have dedicated repositories to store POT/PO.
Please read this page for more details:

The "fairly manual" process was a real issue in the past. We had a lot
of translation that never been published :(
What Adam is working on is: automation.
So, we should have something like this:
English source -> POT files -> PO files -> translated source ->
English source => Doc repository ==> (D)
POT files -> PO files => localization repository ==> (L)
translated source => "web" repository ==> (W)
When there is a change in (D), it will call a job, and update pot files
When there is a change in (L), translation platform will know and get
When there is a change in translation platform, it will update content
every day or night, content from (D) and (L) are used to generate
content for (W), and publish it
To be open: I offered to run a test using my own server as translation
platform with Weblate and this is a personal choice for the development
What we design is and should be translation platform agnostic.
We have to discuss between translators if we want to use Weblate as a
real world test or Zanata for the coming weeks.
There is good and bad: Zanata will be stable but will require way more
time for automation (I won't go into details here).
