We often meet many Fedora users that say, “How can I contribute something to Fedora?” or “How do I become part of Fedora?” This is the right time to reach all those users and inform them they can be contributors!
Why now? For translations, users already know their local language. Its just a matter of using translation tools like Zanata to get those translations in. This is also one good way to learn about processes in the Fedora community. It’s a fantastic chance to learn about packages, reviews, IRC, Bugzilla, mailing lists, etc.
We’re having a Fedora Activity Day, or FAD, to finish translations prior to the next Beta release. We will be gathering online from 3th September to 9th September. We have a list of priority projects to translate and many languages to cover. In later stages, one can also help rewarding contributors and effectively closing the events with statistics and reports.
