As per the UNESCO Interactive Atlas of the World’s Languages in Danger,
Angika (anp)  is in the vulnerable state. This is sad but a fact. I
firmly believe on the statement that with a language not only the language
dies; with the language, history, intellectual and cultural diversity and
cultural identity also die. So need is to preserve the huge loss of
precious human languages that are dying one by one.
I want to work for creating Fedora in Angika language with the help of the
community. Hope the community here will support me as well. Angika is
commonly written in the Devanagari script .
There are a few strings used in partitioning in anaconda, which are in
blivet project in transifex . I reported some missing strings in
bug 1015919  and I don't know if there are other modules like
blivet being used by anaconda for Fedora 20. You should translate that
project for anaconda too.
There are also some bitmaps shown like slides during installation,
which I'm tracking with bug 1013280 . If there are not svg sources
for these images, the Spanish team will provide the translated bitmaps
in that bug. If there are svg sources, maybe someone would be able to
automate the translation process for all teams, creating a small pot
file for the bitmaps. I don't know if we will make it on time with
this issue. We are waiting for an answer from anaconda maintainers.
Name: Cristian Ciupitu

I'm a mix between a software developer and system administrator (for

Me and the Fedora Project:
I've been a Fedora user since its beginning and before that a Red Hat
Linux user. Now I'd like to give something back. I've already reported
quite a few bugs and I even fixed a couple of them. I'm also a packager.
I'm joining this group because I wanted to translate into Romanian the
phrase "Upcoming Beta Release is planned for" from the prerelease
download page . Most of the page is already translated and it's a
shame to have that tiny bit in English.
That's all I want to do at least for now, but it seems that the process
is kind of long and complicated. I would have preferred to just submit a
translation suggestion on Transifex (or a similar system) and let the
team approve, reject or improve it.

As it says in the title I'm Johannes, though I most often identify
myself as "Klap" (which of course is my FAS). From Sweden and therefore
fluent in the native language. I don't doubt the team of Swedish
translators need some more people joining in, so here I am.
I'm currently an Electrical Engineering student. Don't have any real
experiences at all from anything, really. Been studying all my life and
hasn't got the chance to "do" anything as of yet.
Found this translation project and thought it would be a nice thing do
besides my studies, so I haven't explored the rest of what Fedora offers
(except for the O/S which I've been running for the last couple of years).
Last of all, here's my GPG fingerprint and what not:

thank you for reporting this localization issue, I'm forwarding it to
our translations ML. I'm sure the Norwegian team will fix it as soon
as possible, and they would be happy to have more manpower, so if you
are interested in contributing by translating you can follow the L10n
join guidelines , if you need any help you can also ask the
Norwegian L10n team directly, which will introduce you into this

Sure the PO file are very convenient for translation. And sure, there are
a plenty of scripts to extract the text from SVG (as it is pure XML).
1. po4a can extract the text.
2. Scripts from Inkscape docs can do this:
There will be no problems if the banner sizes can be variable (more or
less like Fedora countdown pictures).
The problem is that the banners are relatively small and of strict sizes
so the arbitrary translation can fit them only after some tweaks with text
block and font sizes.
Just my 2 cents.
BTW, what is the appropriate format to submit localized images to Bugzilla
report (SVG, PNG, JPEG)? Make-Fedora-Better.svg will likely to be changed,
where is our Heisenbug? ;)
Thanks in advance for your answers.

Formerly, the cvsl10n group was used to track people in the
translations teams but with the move to transifex I was told this is
However, I realized if we (italian team) stop using it and just add
people to the transifex team these new contributors will not have any
FAS group attached to them and as a result will not count as
contributors. Hence, they will not have a @fedoraproject.org alias,
nor be able to vote in elections, and other "benefits"
So, what is the correct way to deal with FAS on our l10n teams?

Someone can explain me this sentence:
"You must also change the default file context files on the system in
order to preserve them even on a full relabel."
I can't understand the phrase "the default file context files on the system"
