Hi everyone, I'm Anaconda developer responsible for the weblate
migration. I'll try to give you some insights.

That day is a good day related to RHEL localization cycle. The reason
is that we have RHEL and Fedora translations both in one place. That is
helpful for Fedora because translators can use strings created by paid
professionals from RHEL. And they can translate strings to CentOS/RHEL
Another point of view is because of us developers. It's easier to
migrate RHEL & Fedora translations together instead of part and part.

I don't know about priority for migration related to Fedora string
freeze. Do we need to be migrated to Weblate before F32 string freeze?
If yes, then we can break the migration to parts but it would be
slightly more complicated for us (devels).

Translators in RHEL using their tools. One of the benefit is that this
way they can share translations between products. That is not possible
in Weblate as far as I understand.

Yes and no. As I said RHEL translators are giving their translations
(at least in Anaconda and DNF) back to community. So we devels are
trying to find the best way to satisfy both worlds.
Adding DNF devel and RHEL translator to this thread.
