From what I understand, there is abit of dictatorship in the

Benevolent though. I could be accused for not following every string

here again I’d like to call for statistics provided, especially after 21
or 22 April, when I expressed the idea of transferring sq to someone
else. Let the number speak.
By that, it results in alot of restrictions on what other members
contribute towards translations.

So, what I can think of, for the best of both the coordinator and
1) Appoint another person as coordinator too. There is no restrictions
of having only 1 coordinator/reviewer in a language team.
So make it an official action by getting vote through Fedora mailing
list by all the Albanian members, majority wins. This will making sure
the news is open to whole l10n community, and everything goes through
the proper process.
Of course, the wording is important for why we need to start this. "For
sharing the workload and reduce bottleneck of fast growing Albanian
Do you have a reason to extend the initial request from reviewer in
2) Start using l10n/Fedora mailing list. I suggest to get the newly
appointed/going to be coordinator to register a mailing list in fedora
domain and use that, cc'ed trans(a)list.fedoraproject.org
<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> for all upcoming activities
(including the voting). This again would show the initiatives of that
person towards the whole l10n, and also agree with besnik on using the
proper Fedora channel for any l10n activities.
The list does exist. Are you looking to create a parallel sq project,
with a new coordinator, with a new mailing list? Id’ rather go straight
and ask the old one to leave.
3) If for some reason, he dislike the idea, and disagree on the newly
appointed person to be coordinator. Thats where the voting results comes
into play where he simply just can't say no to what majority wants. This
is how the community works.
No need for assumption. I had proposed basically the same 6 months ago,
nobody cared to go that way, as I explained in my answer to Azizaj’s mail.
I think this would help with the current situation in your team.
Thats my opinion :)
To which I partly agree, disagreeing strongly about the steps which
could create a parallel project and eventually overtaking it from the
current maintainer. Not because I think that that would harm my
reputation, or will close for me the doors of contributing, but because
it is ethically wrong and it would set a dangerous precedent for Fedora.
