Elvis-hosted modules to be moved on 18/2

**NOTE**:  This is an *opt out* move of Fedora-as-upstream packages to
a new hosting service.  If you feel your package(s) cannot participate
in this move, you must explicitly state it on the wiki page.  Read on
for full details.

Hey all.

In the previous release cycle, we initiated a move of the modules
hosted on rhlinux.redhat.com (aka i18n.r.c, elvis), over to Fedora
systems [1]. The benefits are fairly obvious: work closer with the
community, development efficiency (versioning system of choice baby!),
administration ease (Fedora Account System, fedorahosted.org),
well-integrated L10n tools, and a better translation workflow. Good
stuff! :)

We'll be having another, *final move* of the rest of the modules on
the 18th of February 2008. The modules listed on the following
coordination page are ones that Fedora is upstream, hosted on elvis,
active, and receiving translations -- they will be moved to the
maintainer's VCS of choice on Fedora Infrastructure.


IIRC, we currently do cvs, svn, hg, git, bzr. Projects hosted on
cvs.fedoraproject.org can receive translations directly. All modules
will be listed on the Translation Statistics page [2] and will use
Transifex [3] (already in production) for handling translation
submissions from all translators. All past and present elvis
contributors (developers, translators, foo) will be mass-emailed with
information for the migration, and guided by existing teams to create
Fedora accounts and continue their work.

The process is *opt out*, so by default all modules listed on the
above page will be *moved* (ie. deleted from elvis). Unless requested
explicitly, default target is cvs.fpo. If you need one of the above
mentioned modules to stay on elvis for a reason, please mark it
clearly on the wiki page together with a justification. Any other
information we should know (dead projects that shouldn't move, details
we should take care, etc) -- just let us know on the wiki page.

Thanks for your attention.
