I support moving away from TX if it prevents us from obeying our 4Fs.
But as a long term translator and a team coordinator, please allow me to
say something that I'm concerning about:
1. If we decide to move, what platform should we move to?
Which is a better place to move?
I haven't use Zanata before, so I can't compare it to transifex. I tried to
login with my FAS account today, but didn't succeed, and it redirected me
to signup page.
On the other hand, there are coordinators in zanata already, if we move to
zanata, who will be the team coordinator? The one from transifex, or the
one from zanata, or both of them, or who else?
2. Will all the contributors(L10n side) willing to move, if not, we will
lose some of our contributors, if yes, all the L10n contributors should
sign up to another platform again, and each coordinator should approve of
their join request manually. We should find some simple way to minimize the
3. Will all the translation history and record be kept? I remember the last
moving, when many translators' credits and history/record were lost, at
least I can't find them anymore. Of course some of the projects may keep
the record on their project sites. But this should be a big issue to
resolve first if we decide to move away.
If any measures can be carried out to solve the problem, transifex is still
a good platform for Fedora. Anyway, translators are familiar with its UI
and function now.
