Hi, 

There is the https://www.transifex.net/projects/p/setuptool/ project liked to the fedora-main release. Could you join the Fedora Project hub in order to re-use their translation teams?

https://fedora.transifex.net/projects/p/fedora/access/outsource/

Cheers,

Hi, I don't understand a word :) I know a little about translations and I don't know much about how that Fedora Project hub works nor what is it. Also, even after logging in, I don't see anything on that second link, only some "access denied" type of message. Could you provide more information and details?

So, answers to your questions:
1st - from the summary - the answer is yes. Setup tool did not change at all last two years and it contains about 20 strings top. That's why there is near to zero activity.

2nd - don't know anything about f. p. hub, please explain it to me first.

Oops, I forgot that this page has a private access.
More explanation then:

Actually you don't have any translation teams, or you will have to create them/add people manually each time.
With you approval I can add your project as a child of the Fedora Project Hub. That will link all Fedora Project teams to your project.
More info at http://help.transifex.net/intro/projects.html#outsourced-project
On the access control settings, you just need to check outsource project and select "Fedora Project".

The Fedora Project hub is there: https://fedora.transifex.net/

If I change project to outsourced, what will happen with already existing translation teams and people belonging to those teams?

Comment 4 Kevin Raymond 2012-03-30 15:28:34 UTC
Existing teams would be overridden.
But actually you only have 7 teams, containing only coordinators (so only 1 translator).

Summary:
*sankarshan is actually already member of the Fedora Project. He would become a simple translator instead of the coordinator.
*zerng07 are going to loose the access
*ankit is already the coordinator of its Fedora Project team
*raven will loose the access, but is a maintainer of the Fedora Project (will understand)
*shnurapet is already the coordinator of its Fedora Project team
*tajikfedora is already the coordinator of its Fedora Project team
*mvd is already the coordinator of its Fedora Project team and yurchor (the second coordinator) will loose the access.

So, it won't cause many damages. 

If you choose to join the Fedora Hub, you could let them know by writting an announcement:
https://www.transifex.net/projects/p/setuptool/announcements/

You will gain many teams (composed of many translators).
Because we already work as a team, we already have our translating process and we know each others, in a translator point of view, it's far more interesting.

You could also open translations "free for all", but IMHO it is a bad option as some people translate without taking care about quality (I have this issue for other projects)
