I know there are some similar projects with their own workflow, but only targeted for
their language and using different source(version) to be translated.
that may causes people get confused between English man pages and localized, i.e. because
I was pondering to join the existing projects to support more languages though; I did
contact one of, but seems not so much interested in. so decided to start another project.
that said if the resources can be centralized, that would speeds up to improve the
quality. I'm willing to discuss about it.
I am the coordinator of the perkamon-fr project mentioned by Jérôme.
At this moment, the master man pages are based on man-pages package
in Fedora, and planning to provide the consistent content for all of supported languages
in Fedora first. eventually containing the man pages in English to the release would be
better to accomplish the above goal though, that may be another milestone.
Distributions patch upstream man-pages, either to fix quirks which are
forwarded upstream, or to document distribution specific changes. At
the moment, there are 2 such pages modified by Fedora.
So if you want to provide a central repository for localized manual
pages, it would be nice to be agnostic about distributions.
and AFAICT does not want to lead some translation framework.
IIRC he prefers to be contacted through the man-pages mailing list,
this may be the only reason why you did not have any reply from him.
