here are my answers, inline to make it easier to understand, sorry for
mailing list etiquette.
@transators: please feel free to amend/debate what I wrote, part of it
comes from public discussions, the rest comes from my own wishes.

Hello, Fedora Localization/Translations team,
I'm Alberto from CommOps, looking for your help to answer the next questions for
solving one of my tickets
Fedora Localization/Translations team
Fedora Localization team
Preferred asynchronous communication channel (mailing list, discussion.fp.o, etc.):
Preferred synchronous (IRC channel, telegram, etc., none):
None probably is the best answer.
We have #fedora-l10n on IRC but it really is quiet and unfriendly for
non technical expert.
Issue tracker: https://pagure.io/fedora-l10n/tickets
We should move to docs someday, but we are quite far from it:
is almost empty.
Meetings times and locations (if applicable):
Define the current responsibilities of your Team:
Make Fedora resource multilingual by translating or adapt content.
Contribute the global effort to make Linux a multilingual system by
translating FLOSS projects.
Define the current goals of your Team:
Be fully integrated in
the Fedora community processes.
What is the greatest strength of your team?
Were are a decentralized team, hundreds of volunteers each in its
language. Few teams have multiple members.
What is the greatest weakness of your team?
We have almost no way to help each other and really collaborate.
What are the long term plans for the team (if applicable)?
Last time we talked about it, was at Flock Krakow in 2019.
From my notes (sorry I did not publish that anywhere):
* Support local communities by allowing them to use Fedora tools in
their languages in their projects
* Support translators by providing them tools to make them more efficient
* Translate FAS and Nuancier
* Organize virtual FAD focused on translation
* Translate the Silverblue webiste, its toolbox and its documentation
* make our documentation multilingual
Half of these objectives are now done :)
Some thanks to our actions:
* fedora documentation is now multilingual
Some thanks to external people:
* FAS 2, aka Noggin can be translated thanks to infra team
* Silverblue doc moved to Fedora docs
Is there anything you can consider a "Mission Statement"
for Your Team?
Fedora mission is: /The Fedora Project envisions a world where everyone
benefits from free and open source software built by inclusive,
welcoming, and open-minded communities./
I feel like it does the job for our team too, we make our part to make
this mission comes true for the billions of Human who are not English
Is there a specific task or issue that your Team needs help for from
the Mindshare Committee?
Localization is a fine place to discover the Fedora community, a fine
place for inclusion, help us to make multilingualism part of the Fedora
community. We have too many initiatives which can't be translated just
because the toolkit was chosen without taking internationalization in
* Make Community blog and Fedora Magazine content available to non
English native: rational, if someone feels like translating something,
then it worth it. Even better, allow non English content to whatever
team wants to try.
* Make Package and modules description content available to non English
native: rational, the whole system speak the user language but the dnf
* Make all our tools available to non English native: rational, what
Fedora uses should be reusable to local community to self organize.
Is there some function/activity you would like to see your Team doing
that they aren’t doing currently?
Virtual FAD would be most welcome.
Thank you so much for your attention and participation.
thank you for your work, sorry for slow response,
