Licaon_KterHow are traslations hadled? Or do I need to wait for the email like everyone else and then do it....now sure how that is uselful...eg. Jan 2020 one will link my translated Dec 2019?
Nÿcocreating a place where people can donate to a free/opensource project is only the very first step...
after that, you need to promote it... like promote it really
I mean it is a duty by the leaders of the project
being exposed in only one XSF newsletter will certainly help, but only a bit
most of the promotion work is a day to day task, to be achieved by the project itself
Nÿcoon the "Calls" section of the newsletter, if you have doubts, I guess it would nice to come up with very clear and simple rules
what do you think?
Nÿcolike this one:
* one "call" per project
Nÿcoanother example could be:
* call for a specific thing, and focus (example: donations, UX revision, translation, etc.)
Martinper project per month, three month period, half year or year?
MartinBTW, on places on xmpp.org where projects are named and linked could be a link to the donations page as well. E.g [client](https://client.im) ([donate](https://client/im/donate))
Licaon_KterMartin: because projects can have a webpage but can't add the Donate button by their own?
Licaon_Kter*on their own pago
MartinQuick access 😃
Licaon_KterMartin: I'll just donate to this link without opening the project page, sounds good
MartinAs shown in the example I suggest to link on the projects donation page where all donation possibilities would be listed. Most projects have this.
MartinI won't link to PayPal or whatever directly.
emusOk, will think about rules
emusProbably we need to check whats coming by time

Trusted translator.....text full of typos.... 👍
emusI try to translate the German version asap. you just can use RSS feed of jabber.de. for the moment the same goes for the spanish version. however it takes much longer to review
emusI personally dont thing that is a big problem for now
emusLicaon_Kter: You can always link where it will appear
Licaon_Kteremus: I don't have a space....it that a MUST? I'll see about one I guess
My issue was more on the timing part...
emus> emus: I don't have a space....it that a MUST? I'll see about one I guess

I dont 100% understand your problem actually
Licaon_KterThe translation won't be hosted by xmpp itself right? So i need to setup a page on my domain and the newsletter will link to it?
emusAh, thats what you mean. yes basically
emusSee the recent post somewhere at the top
emuswe also, at least me, drop it to the xmpp wiki
emusas a central place to document
emusI personally try to host it on local official sites about xmpp. but e.g jabberes.org is not reliable atm (as they told me)
Nÿco> The translation won't be hosted by xmpp itself right? So i need to setup a page on my domain and the newsletter will link to it?
anyone CAN use the XMPP wiki to do the newsletter translations
do we agree?
emusI dunno. at least someone of us should put the translations there
vanitasvitaeBtw, why arent translations hosted by xmpp.org? Lack of resources?
vanitasvitaeOr to embrace the nature of decentricity? :D
Nÿcoour wiki can definitely host translation process, but our website is English-only
NÿcoXMPP has 356 Followers on fosstodon, it seems the growth has slowed down
if we do the ratio:
Twitter has 300M+ users, our XMPP account has 1.6k followers
Fediverse has 3M+ users, our XMPP account has 350+ followers
Link MauveThe duration of their existence is probably also very different.
emus> The duration of their existence is probably also very different.
I try to look for persistent publishers. jabber.de has quite some credit in that
emusMy suggestion would be though: Ifbthere are more translations, and tha on a continuous basis, the XSF should host them in the blog
Licaon_KterEg Can a page be made and linked on the letter: Translations available here...
emus> Eg Can a page be made and linked on the letter: Translations available here...
There is a sentence under Articles about that
DebXWoodyWhat do you think about a wiki Namespace for each language?
DebXWoodyMediawiki just use a postfix like https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Template:Main_page/de
