Maybe it was mentioned before but are we really going to migrate to Zanata before F21 release?
I saw the high level schedule on Wiki.
As a lot of new things and changes coming to F21, I'm kind of hoping not rushing migration before F21.
Just play safe, we can start migration afterwards.
Here are my concerns to migrate to Zanata BEFORE F21 release:
1. Infra and Web team will probably be busy to support the changes in Fedora.next. In case of anything wrong with Zanata migration, we may not have enough hands to help.
2. I don't have concrete number but it would be safe to assume that current users of Fedora Transifex Hub are significantly larger than public Zanata instance. We don't know how Zanata would cope with such a high demands during F21 translation window. Giving now it was powered by OpenShift, in theory it shouldn't be a problem to scale up. But hey, we'd better be caution.
3. So far this message is only relayed to few translation mailing lists and the talk with Zanata team is just started. And the season of translating will start next Monday! :) Not much time for us to come up a tangible migration plan.
Nevertheless, it's not like Transifex will going to charge us a large $$$ or shut us off. Thus really no need to rush things down before F21.
We can make it a phase-by-phase plan. The last thing I would want to see is a surprise during migration cause loss of precious history or credit. Shall we take the opportunity of FLOCK to discuss this more thoroughly?
Since we have never rejected a CC-licensed PhotoShop-ed wallpaper contest submission, or a PO translation edited by TextMate, Transifex going proprietary shouldn't post a threat to our 4Fs IMHO. I'm also supporting mitigation to Zanata if it can bring us better integration with FAS and more streamlined translation workflow.
