Re: Introduction mail

Hello all,

It seems Shantha kumar is now not working in Red Hat. Since there is no active contributor for Tamil translation. So can I contribute Fedora translation project without a coordinator? Is it possible?

    I would like to meet and interact with Tamil translators in the
    Fedora translation team.

As far as i know here issue is, we do not have active language coordinator. Its only one man team. [1] but no activity almost from a year.  How do we handle this request??
There is no problem, Buvanesh Kumar should try to reach him and know more about his status. I added him in CC.
Maybe a new contributor will bring back more activity, if he do not wish to coordinate anymore, we have a process.

Short version (thank you Noriko for this sentence) :
"If there is a current coordinator and you will be taking over the role with some reason, the current coordinator must agree and post an announcement of this hand-over to the trans <> mailing list. In case the current coordinator is totally unresponsive, first please contact the administrator."
