Forwarding a potentially interesting discussion taking place on
gnome-i18n and kde-81n-doc on the topic of creating upstream
freedesktop.org teams to be shared across projects.

Dear translators,

You know that some freedesktop.org packages on which GNOME and KDE (and
other environments) depend are translated on the Transifex platform.
Currently, there is very few control on who can translate those
packages, which can result in a lack of consistency in the translations.
We propose to set up freedesktop.org teams on Transifex, and only people
we know are active on respective translation projects (or other publicly
known translation projects) will be accepted in those teams. We will
then try to convince various maintainers to delegate translation of
their package to those teams.

Of course, there might always be some disagreements on terminology
between projects. Please respect each other's work and avoid quarreling
as much as possible :-)

We suggest now that current team leaders ask for team creation on
Transifex freedesktop project (link above).

Nicolas Ternisien (KDE i18n project) and Claude Paroz (GNOME i18n
