To: For discussions about marketing and expanding the Fedora user base <

"FUEL (Frequently Used Entries for Localization) aims to solve the problem
of inconsistency and lack of standardization in computer software
translation in a new and unique way. Initiated by Red Hat, the project is
trying to give a better experience to end users of a localized desktop by
resolving the issues of standardization and inconsistency."

"FUEL is an attempt to standardize terms for the whole desktop instead of
concentrating on different applications separately. At present, FUEL
incorporates representative entries from the GNOME desktop, OpenOffice.org,
Firefox browser, Evolution email client, and Pidgin instant messenger, so
that it can have at least all the entries that a normal user uses very
frequently. Later, on demand from communities, FUEL can incorporate more
applications in its list from different projects."
