I'll try to contact those and ask them if they are interested. But IMHO
the biggest problems see currently:

- What with content from the german wiki -- do we want to integrate it
in our current wiki? If yes:
-- What is legally allowed on http://www.fedoraproject.org ? 
When the wiki was quite new I asked if it was okay to mention livna
stuff there. The answer was: Better not mention it. But now we have a 
in it that mentions livna and other things that might be problematic.
-- If the english written by people with a different mother tongue is to
horrible (like my english) -- are there people with good english skills
around that can fix it?
- I think without technical support in/around the wiki the content will
between the different languages will diverge soon. But maybe I'm wrong.
If people People maintaining the wiki send changes in the german version
back upward into the english version it might work.

BTW gregdk, your points above only concerned the wiki -- getting the
subdomains to a start on fedoraforum.org might be a lot easier. There
should be nearly nothing to translate.

BTW2, Who is behind http://www.fedorausers.org/ and are there
technically things planed to get this a multi-language site from the
start? Do wee need that web-page if we have the faq in the wiki?
