The future of langpacks in Fedora
In this session we will brainstorm the present and future of langpacks in Fedora.With the advent of containers, cloud images, flatpaks, and Silverblue, the need for a more modular OS is increasing and this also applies to the evolving handling of langpacks. Langpacks are no longer just translations
but also include locales, fonts, input methods, as well as dictionaries etc. The i18n UX will need to balance what is pre- and post-installed.

Use cases for Transtats in the Fedora community
Transtats (https://transtats.fedoraproject.org/) has been in development for a while by now, however, it’s still new in the community. The project started with an aim to tie up loose ends in the fedora localization process. It can help developers, package maintainers, quality engineers, language maintainers, translators and project managers to ship packages with translation completeness. Furthermore, it can give at-a-glance picture for managing the l10n effort progress, release by release!
The application talks to various services, for example, translation platforms, repositories, build systems, etc. to collect translation data. Moreover, they are analyzed to create meaningful representations. Alerts and notifications are in the pipeline.
This talk is about what Transtats has to offer to the community in g11n space, in addition to this, to understand - what we need to bring in Transtats to make it more effective. A basic crosscheck on what we have next on development road-map and what will benefit the community.

Defining a Fedora Goal related to localization
This session will feature a 25 minute talk followed by a workshop.

Localization is a good way to embed new contributors and reach new users. For years, it has been really difficult to get global localization data to discuss on facts. I'd like us to discuss about how the Fedora community can be innovative in this field too, and why we need more localization discussion project wide.
As the objective of Mindshare is "Mindshare Teams are focused on helping our community grow both the number of users and contributors. The teams in Mindshare are each focused on a different aspect of this goal.", I also wonder how to include the localization teams in the fedora governance.
We can now access three kinds of localization statistics:
I'd present the results of these statistics and animate a collective discussion to:
  • imagine collective goals we could have about localization, both about the Fedora project itself than globally in the Linux ecosystem
    • Fedora project itself goals:
      • What part of our communication should be multilingual? One example with https://pagure.io/fedora-diversity/issue/97
      • What part of our tools should be multilingual?
      • Do we want translation targets for a few major languages?
      • For our key packages, do we have sufficient translation support (software, docs, website)?
    • Linux ecosystem goals:
      • Do we need to enable support for minority languages? Do we need to actively support some language communities so they exist in the cyberspace?
      • Do we want to host the translation of some projects?
      • Do we want to create a giant translation memory and other translator related tools to help contributors?
      • Do we want to help the Linux community to translate .desktop and appstream content? (Opensuse started something https://github.com/openSUSE/desktop-file-translations)
  • decide if having localization team part of Mindshare can be of any help to the project

Fedora translation platform: validating the migration plan
Quoting @bex on translation mailing list (may 22nd 2019): "Zanata no longer has a functioning upstream and is on "ping and power" level life support to keep our instance running. At this time there is no reason to believe the project will become viable so we need to consider where we want to host our translation in the future."

From what we know, we'll probably have to migrate to weblate but there is a lot to decide before starting a migration. Work is ongoing to consolidate our needs and to draw a migration strategy.
Migration plan and all related information: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/L10N_Move_to_Weblate

We'll have to decide:
1. Where to host it, there pros/cons in hosting it ourselves vs. pay Weblate for it.
2. What features improvements we want and what we can pay for.
3. What is the migration plan itself (what is to be done, when, where we start from, who coordinate, who has to contribute)

This talk is for:
  • Any active l10n or i18n contributor willing to help with the migration,
  • At least one person to represent council: we need to know the amount of money we can reasonably invest)
  • At least one person from infrastructure team: maybe they can't or don't want to host Weblate for some reasons
  • Any maintainer or project currently using Zanata: we'll need to start somewhere :)
