This is so great !!

Here is a bunch of my already favorite features :

* Weekly notification for maintainers
* Translation Reviews
* Rich Commenting Support
* Project Releases and Removal of Collections
* Lotte Improvements
* Team Sharing
* Project Widgets

I just can't wait to work with it :D

About the staging instance, it seems to work however, it's quite 
difficult to understand what's not working because it is a staging 
instance (and thus, not full Fedora features instance). I mean, there 
are no translations teams, no possibility to login or test a file 
submit. Or maybe we can, but I did not found out where.

With regards,
