Subject [NL][Proposal] structure and process
Date Wed, 14 Dec 2011 06:51:21 GMT
Hi all,

I tried to rewrite the native language page,, and to define
structure and process of Native Language Projects within Apache (incubating) project.
Native Language Projects

A Native Language Project has a native language list. They discuss
about their activity on the list. Their activities include
localization, translation, quality assurance, documentation, user
support and marketing etc. For these activities they can use the site
(, the wiki
( and the pootle
server (

If you want to create your native language project, take the following steps.

1. You subscribe the project list,
2. Show your enthusiasm on the list
3. Become a committer and PPMC member if someone recommends you and
PPMC approves you as a committer and PPMC member.
4. Then on the project list you will propose a name of your native
language list. It should be looks like
ooo-xxxxx-(language-code) where xxxxx will be a
word you like. For example Japanese Native Language Project chose
"general" for "xxxxx" so that its list name is
5. If no objection against your proposal, then file an issue titled
"Create ooo-xxxxx-(language-code)"
6. When the list is created, the Apache (incubating)
project may help announce it using ooo-announce list if we have it
7. Or you can tell your friends or write a blog about your native
language list and encourage your native language users and
contributors to subscribe the list.

If a current committer or a PPMC member wants to create her/his native
language project and to be a moderator for its native language list,
then it will be easy for them to create it and start their native
language activity because they can skip step 1, 2 and 3.
