We seem to be getting the L10n effort under way (in a new server), 
and the subject pretty much sums up the situation: 

We need
- translators (obviously),
- coordinators (that can actually manage each language) and
- volunteers (the universal glue?)

All languages are welcome, but it should be noted that there's a 
need for those languages used in the 'green countries', which 
are: Amharic, Arabic, English, Spanish, French, Hausa, Hindi, 
Igbo, Nepali, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Kinyarwanda, Thai, 
Urdu, & Yoruba.

I've updated the [[Localization]] page, noting that the previous 
workflow for submitting translations using tickets is being 
dropped (translations are going to be primarily on-line), making 
reference to the [[Pootle]] page (that still needs some 
club^H^H^H^H polishing) about its use. For future administrators 
the [[Pootle/Administration]] could be of interest.

One of the nice features of Pootle is the ability to have 
glossaries that are used to propose translated terms dynamically 
in the web-gui (thus helping keep a homogeneous terminology). So 
I made rude first approach in [[Pootle/Glossary]] that could also 
do with some reviewing... 

If you are interested in participating, at the bottom of the 
[[Pootle]] page there's a table for signing up.
Note: From previous mails, I took the liberty of signing up Khaled 
Hosny [ar], Simos Xenitellis [el] and Maxim Osipov [ru].

Questions, suggestions, ideas, etc. are all welcome!
