Can you provide any example of "attitude" regarding <em>this</em>
community? And I haven’t express any about the people of <em>your</em>
community either. If I had an attitude, I wouldn’t have accepted 18,
eighteen, new people, into Albanian Fedora Translation team, I wouldn’t
have made the offer to transfer the administration of the whole project
to any of them capable, I could have simply bulk reject their
contribution in anaconda and elsewhere (they still are there, you scroll
only a couple of dozens of strings in top, only to find them ridden of
misspelling words. I have not even bother to look for logical errors,
consistency issues, misinterpretation, et cetera, et cetera…)

I haven’t hidden anything from what you stated above about the creation
of the mailing list. Your are dreaming about intentions here. And you
should know by now that you don’t give admin rights to unknown people,
people who just arrived, as it was the case with your protégée at that
time, while I’ve been the coordinator and the main contributor to Fedora
translations prior to even the foundation of the organization you

You’re again making assumptions here about how future participants could
have guessed--prior to their arrival to the list-- how easy or difficult
would be to participate, unless they have been biased to believe so. You
could go back to the list and try to find a case in which I made people
uncomfortable to participate in the translations. You’ll find none,
unless you count a couple of mails where I implored new members to get
rid of Hotmail email addresses and one about a inappropriate nickname!
(I think even those were personal mails, not sent through the list, but
I might be mistaken…)

I was not wondering. I referred what Zanata provides for the last two
months. In case you don’t know yet, Zanata is the platform for managing
Fedora translations. Extra-translational activities of any kind are
off-topic in this thread.

I still don’t. I wanted to prove myself wrong though, that’s why I let
18 new contributors in (mainly recruted from your organization, it
seems). Zanata reports that I was right then, as far as Fedora sq

I’ve recognized his contribution in a previous mail to the locale list.
For the rest no comprehensive statistics (you might light to count my
contribution in Fedora website group of translations and elsewhere;

That’s not true either. I haven’t done any really reviewing since late
April and the reasons are stated over and over (my initial idea of
transferring the maintenance of the project to someone else).
Just because someone is able to register an account on Zanata doesn’t
make them automatically contributors.

I’d invite you to refrain from guessing. My actions prove you wrong here.
As per what I want, I won’t bother telling you that one more time. I
have done that enough in the past.
