I'm cc'ing this thread to translators, because we really need most ideas like this one, in order to tracking more easily our own bugs.

Actually, we have components for languages (i don't know since when);
This for Spanish (es):

Product: Fedora Localization; Component: Spanish

As i've pointed above, we have the tools yet, but we are not using it, i think. Maybe lack of training?

Everybody, please share your search parameters to found bugs, i have this: 

Product: Fedora;	Keywords: Translation;	New, Assigned, Modified

Product: Fedora Documentation;	Keywords: translation; N, A, M, V, Closed.

Product: Fedora Localization; Status: Mod, New, Assigned, ON_DEV, ON_QA, RELEASE_PENDING, POST

Having *just one* bugs list would be a great tool to handle the ubiquitous newcomers to docs or translation teams, showing them a single source to suscribe for lot of tasks. I think in a pretty easy address to include in feedback/translation notes; something like the feedback for webmaster at would be better (being forwarded to websites at l.fp.o list without hassle). I have the feeling we lose a lot of feedback (i'm thinking a lot of translation bugs, you know) since the process to file a single bug forces anyway to create an account into Bugzilla.

Anyway, for everybody looking for something to do about docs&L10N bugs:

Well, you know, maybe it would be better a docs-bugs list and a separate trans-bugs list. Again, something not demanding one more register process for people kind enough to file a bug, even in an informal way.

Kind regards,
Jesús Franco
