     I still think that you should keep going with your role and try to get 
some contributors.

I am not sure if you already know, I have relocated to Dubai in our new 
office. There few partners and Universities in the region want to contribute 
.. If you still interested I can try to gear up and get good number of 

What do you think?

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 
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.
