We should probably ask for a new queue under RT for managing
requests to translation coordinators. Thus, when we receive
request on web-trans we could bounce them there and keep track
of who's being working on them and which is the status. I guess
most of us will need an account in RT and will need to learn a
bit how RT works, but it shouldn't be difficult.

Having RT access makes also possible to move tickets to other
queues like webmaster's (which sometimes could be useful).

Even if it's possible to have a new RT queue for us, we could
use the trans-coord project on Savannah for coordination with
local project leaders and translators. For instance, we could
ask for a trans-coord-whatsnew mail list, as requested by Nick
Ferrier (I've explained it to him and he likes the idea).

So, we should have an RT queue for translation managers and
trans-coord project on Savannah for translation team leaders.

For those of you who don't know what's RT, this means Request
Tracker and is a powerful interface to handle lots of users
requests (many sites and ISPs are using RT) and it's free

I'm not sure but I think it's possible to have internal documents
and manuals inside RT, which are protected by RT authentication.

We should ask <address@hidden> to change web-translator-manager
alias to the translation coordination team mail addresses. Thus,
each of us should have admin access to the web-trans list (I've
already a large experience with Mailman). We should probably CC
to RMS to get it quickly resolved.

Once the web-translator-manager alias is changed, we could ask
<address@hidden> for a new password.

Which RT queue? There are many on gnu.org...

This should be asked to <address@hidden>. It should be
easy to get admin right for one of you who are already listed as
developers on the project. After that, you can change anything
you want from the project.

To summarize:

* <address@hidden>:
If you like the idea of asking for a new RT queue, I will ask
sysadmin, request them to change the web-translator-manager
alias and add spam filters to web-trans too.

* <address@hidden>:
One of you (Dwayne or Praveen) who are already developers on the
trans-coord project should ask savannah-hackers for admin rights
(if no response is sent in 1 week, resend the request CC to rms).
