Re: Release announcement translation

Release announcements for new releases are a major piece of information that hasnt been translated and announced in sync unlike the release notes. Since this adds a lot of visibility to the L10N efforts, I would like to see us do that from the Fedora Core 6 release onwards.

If you would like to get a preview of how this could work, check
out the "press-release" project from CVS.  There is a meaningless
example press release there, just to demonstrate the technology.

This approach solves several problems (and probably creates many
more):

1)  Press releases are written in XML, using a tiny custom DTD.

2)  All translatible strings are exposed in the XML, so the familiar
    .PO/.POT approach will work for the translation team.

3)  Document building uses the stock xmlto RPM package.  The DTD and
    generated XSL-FO is simple enough that passivetex appears to have
    no trouble understanding it.

Let me know what you think.  Here on the list, of course.


That would work for me. You can import the current draft and use it from http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FC6ReleaseSummary. It will be updated again before the actual release however. We can have this follow along with the rest of the docs as it reaches the freeze date for the translation work to be done.
