Short summary: Discussing before switching the translation system of some
After spending many hours in the merge issue between our old teams and the
ones, it is still an active task.
Thanks to involved contributors, it is moving forward, there are already some
projects fully merged.
Willing to help with the IQSG (installation quick start guide), I noticed an
issue in the transifex config, which leads me to a zanata config file and the
corresponding git commits.
A bit of history.
A while back, we were using our own Transifex instance, which was not sticking
to the upstream releases. It was a mess with projects unavailable and other
There were 2 solutions:
- Migrating to transifex.net
, the online hosted service maintained by the
- Moving to an other system (in our infra or somewhere else).
Some wanted to try Zanata. There where a RH instance set for this purpose.

(still some merge concerning docs).
So here we are, with translations done through transifex.net

The IQSG is not correctly set up.

Fedora Installation Quick Start Guide 19 juin 2012 Active
Fedora Installation Guide 19 juin 2012 Active
I just asked more info on IRC, and it appears that we need to discuss/define how
we deal with our translation platform, and let our maintainers explain why they
need to move somewhere else.
nb has reverted the ZANATA commits in the above guides, to avoid mistakes.
@maintainers, could you please explain your needs/wishes?
