Subject: [gentoo-dev] Internationalisation of (part II)

Following today's discussion on -dev with seemant, klieber and others,
it has been suggested that i send an email summing up what could be good
in terms of getting an international touch on, so here i am.

Whilst the ideal situation would be to have an i18n site in all
maintained languages from doc, i've been told it would be impossible for
now for several reasons including time constraints and priorities.

So it seems that we should move to a single local <country> page summing
up links to 'regional' websites and projects. It has also been
mentionned that the coordinator of the translators team could be the
right candidate to ensure CVS access to such a page which would be
maintained by the translation team (one or several people). This is a
good beginning to show users that we care for them and such local
projects exist.

Seemant mentionned that no time can currently be allocated to the i18n
aspect of as more important issues are being dealt with. We
should however get more feedback and action in roughly a weeks time.

Some other translators such as Sergey (svyatogor), Sven (swift) and Bass
(José) have already shown their interest in such an initiative. I filled
in a bug last saturday here :

Hoping that sums it up and more people are interested in the idea, this
is now open for suggestions.
