Release announcement translation


Release announcements for new releases are a major piece of information that hasnt been translated and announced in sync unlike the release notes. Since this adds a lot of visibility to the L10N efforts, I would like to see us do that from the Fedora Core 6 release onwards.

I have talked to Paul.W.Frields on IRC and there are a few things we need to take care of.

* Release announcements are usually in a style which doesnt lend itself well to translation and changing into a more formal style would make it rather dull. We can workaround that by doing a alternative formal style announcement that we translate leaving the current community style announcement untranslated but linking them together. I had written a release summary for Fedora Core 5 and now a draft one for Fedora Core 6 (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FC6ReleaseSummary) which might serve this purpose.

* After the test3 release we need to decide the location of the final Fedora Core 6 release notes and link to it from the above release summary, convert it into DocBook XML format, import into CVS and make it available for translation.

I am copying Alam and Jesse Keating for coordinating the translation efforts and making sure that the release summary is linked from the community announcement. We need to get the ball rolling now.
