This is a known problem for browsers set to many languages.  MoinMoin, 
the wiki software that powers fedoraproject.org's wiki, attempts to 
translate 'FrontPage' for browsers set to languages other than English.  
It isn't a bug, just part of the configuration of MoinMoin.  Work is 
already underway to remedy this.
