The current mozilla.dev.l10n group is 95% dedicated to product localization. We need a different group for website localisation coordination since the people involved in products and web localisation are often different and I expect a high volume of messages related to web localisation that could add be annoying for product localizers in mozilla.dev.l10n.
I don't see anything wrong with this. I know the existing newsgroup is pretty busy already. And there's not much danger "web" will be confused with a language code. Gerv
Sounds good to me.
Japan supports this decision.
Chiming in here -- this will greatly help effective communications with localizers for the Firefox 2 launch as it relates to website content. Who will create this newsgroup, and when? Apologies if these are obvious questions. :-)
Reassigning to server-ops for creation.
any news on the newsgroup creation? September is next week and many localizers will be back from holidays. We need a way to communicate with them, get centralized feedback and organize translation work. If we can't have the newsgroup soon, I'd like to know, in this case I will setup a private mailing-list or use mozilla europe's "activemembers" mailing list as an interim solution. Thanks.
Sorry for insisting again one week later, but if we want a localized mozilla.com, a localized AMO and other niceties like translated press releases etc. for Firefox 2 launch, we need this newsgroup now and not in late September or worse...
Mailing list has been created and admin/moderator password mailed to Pascal. It will remain hidden until the newsgroup has been created to go with it. Newgroup request has been submitted to Giganews and Google.
This newsgroup now exists on both Giganews and Google. The mailing list has been unhidden.
