I am sure, most of the people working with Fedora I18N, L10N from 5-6
year must be aware regarding Fedora L10N Steering Committee.  As far
as i know this committee was active around 2009 and very effective.
During Fedora G11N activity day discussions, we again felt there is
need for some kind of official committee to drive Fedora Globalization
activities. Fedora is growing faster with number of different domains
and G11N also need to adapt those changes quickly to remain on the track.
For this purpose and in line with , we were thinking of Fedora
Globalization steering committee. I have created initial proposal for
Its open for feedback, please feel free to share other active members,
discuss in your respective language groups. This is just initial
proposal and i am sure, we can improve and make it more effective with
g11n mailing list
I'd like to introduce myself a bit ...
Location: Berlin, Germany
I have a background in translation, but I currently work as a data
analyst. In my free time, I do karate and go running (or just for a
walk instead). I have been using Fedora for roughly a year and I like
it very much. That's why I decided to start contributing to it now.

Looking forward to working with you!
As part of the F29 Fedora classroom "semester", we were wondering if
someone could instruct a session on l10n? It could be a basic 101
session that introduces the attendees to l10n, shows them the tools,
shoes them how to get started, and maybe a quick demo of the workflow
It'll be a great way to give the very important l10n project more
visibility, and since most of these classroom sessions are attended by
end-users and prospective contributors, it also helps more people join
up and contribute.
The date/order of sessions has not been decided yet. The instructors are
free to choose a day/time that work for them.
If someone can please take this session, it'll be awesome! We (the
Classroom SIG) can help with all the logistics---setting up a
Jitsi/BlueJeans meeting, announcing the session on the Magazine and so
on. All we need is an instructor who will teach the session :)
This is the ticket on our tracker:

I'm Carmen from Friesland, The Netherlands. I am currently working on
GNOME to make the GNOME desktop available in Esperanto. At the current
rate, GNOME 3.22 will have its core release (standard apps, core
libraries) completely translated into Esperanto, which I am fairly proud
Unfortunately, from the big distributions, only Debian (and its
derivatives) have Esperanto available as a choice out of the box. I
want to make sure that Fedora also gets that option.
Could someone give me a few steps in the right direction to get that
ball rolling? I imagine an Esperanto team must be created on Zanata
(which is why I have CC'd Michael Moroni, who is listed as coordinator
at <https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/L10N_Teams>;). I also imagine some
packages need adjusting.
I have some experience with RPM packaging from openSUSE's Build Service,
so I can probably do that just fine on my own, but I would really
appreciate if someone provided me with an overview of the core language
packages (or how to find such an overview). I imagine it would be okay
to just send a patch to those packages to enable/add Esperanto? Or is
this all done automatically? That truly would be magical.
A little bit about myself finally: I'm a free software advocate, avid
D&D player, software engineering student, FSFE volunteer, and a couple
of other things. You can find me at the FSFE booth at SFScon in
Bozen/Bolzano, 16 November.
Thanks and with kindness,
