I think I am the current maintainer of Fedora and frankly the current 
situation is a disaster. The last time some one offered to help is Jan/2007 as 
can be seen here:

I believe I used to respond properly to any message in the Arabic Fedora 
mailing list. I really got busy to the point I couldn't translate myself but 
always doing a good job reviewing and guiding others on how to submit proper 
translations. However, this is not the best situation I know.

Sherif, may be it's better you take the torch now or find someone who can 
encourage a community around the Arabic translation. Please, advice and I am 
all yours and thanks for your care about our language.
