Hi Noriko,
glad to hear from you.

Yes, websites are following the ongoing discussion on the trans ML and
previously on the Infra ML.
We are aware that nothing will change before F22, but from our side
something will change before.

The spreadsheet is ok, all actual owners are listed and we won't have
any other projects so far.

I think the impact on the websites will be less important than in
other Projects. I guess the same POT file we are pushing regularly to
Transifex will be pushed to Zanata and that's it for us. We need to
change some scripts and verify that all owners have credentials to
manage the website repo there.

As I said before we will have an important change before F22, because
for F21 we are redesigning completely the websites of I hope all the work done by the L10n teams can be
migrated cleanly without any needs to do the work twice.
Can you let us know if that will be the case? Otherwise I fear that
translators will have to translate the new strings first on TX and
then on Zanata.
We will let you know in time when we are going to create the new branch, which will be merged into the master branch once
we are near to F21 GA Release.

Thanks to you for your effort.
