But you posted this to fedora-trans-list.

The reason the Translation Project appeared to stop accepting any new
paper disclaimers was because the FSF moved offices, and the new
tenant at the old address started throwing away all mail addressed to
the FSF, without telling anyone. Not very helpful on their part, but
nothing much to do now. If you sent your paper disclaimer in this time
frame and did not get any answer, please send it again using the
updated contact information in the updated disclaimer at

Furthermore, the Translation Project has recently seen new hosting
changes, with new servers and location
(http://lists.imendio.com/pipermail/tp-sv/2007-July/002091.html). All
in all, many past issues seem to have been addressed.

What if everyone did "request for help" for unrelated software? Better
use the appropriate forum from the start.
