> Last release we had an idea that I'm proposing we try for
Fedora 7. For
> reasons that should be obvious as you read, the Ambassadors seem to be a
> natural group to do this. Perhaps in coordination/collaboration with
> Fedora Translation/L10n contributors?
> The basic idea is to distribute to countries/regions a list of "talking
> points". Talking points are specific items we want to see covered in
> any release announcement. Then each region/language can choose to i)
> form a small team, and ii) collaborate to write a truly localized
> release announcement.
> In the past, the announcement introduction has been written in English
> in a semi-humorous way. To understand it, you had to know specific
> cultural references. This made them fairly impossible to translate (or
> transliterate). Or even understand, period.
> This new method would rely entirely upon the local groups to collaborate
> on an announcement, then distribute it within their region as a formal
> Fedora release announcement. One place to start is fedora-announce.
> How many different language announcements can we get on fedora-announce
> for Fedora 7?
> One concern that is that a release announcement is a very big chance to
> start misinformation about Fedora. For example, an announcement may be
> written in a language not read by most of the Fedora leadership, and the
> authors accidentally choose terms or phrasing that reflect negatively on
> Fedora. The quality of the writing or grammar also reflects on Fedora.
> To lower this risk, it seems like a good idea to have the release
> announcement draft due for review by the final test (usually test3,
> occasionally test4). Every draft announcement then needs an independent
> review by a reader of that language.
> I'm sure that this has been done informally in various countries. This
> idea is to formalize the process, recognize the people involved with the
> honor of speaking LOUDLY for Fedora, and make an ever bigger impact with
> this next release.
