Hi Sankarshan :)

Noriko's email was concerning any language coordinator who may not still 
have admin access. To gain access they would need to contact the Zanata 
team (who are Red Hat employees). The best way to contact them is via 
zanata-users at

Regarding the discussion, as the title of this email thread would 
suggest, it all sprang up from my self-introduction to the Fedora 
community so it all has baring and relevance to people here (as far as I 
can see).

So at the moment the process that we have is the same as the one you are 
familiar with. A member of the language community desiring admin access 
contacts an admin of the infrastructure (who, for Zanata, are currently 
Red Hat employees).

I hope that clears a few things up. If not, I'm happy to help straighten 
things out :D
