A bit more work is needed. Here are my concerns:

- currently, when creating a GNU projects, I can trigger an automatic
  creation of If one need another
  location, I have to ask Jim (the FSF sysadmin) to bind the webpages
  CVS repository to a given place at Web-only projects
  are currently a bit broken in that regard, I create them as GNU and
  switch them then to Web-only, and if needed ask Jim to change the
  location. So far, we had very few web-only projects, so there were
  no issue (except, now that I check, maybe the /gugve group, that
  should be located at instead of IMHO). The
  official meaning of GNU-webonly projects is to provide only a way to
  update, eg webpages of GNU projects whose
  development is not done at Savannah, or the GPL quiz webpages, among

  anyway, when I create a project for a translation team, whatever its
  project type, I don't know where to store them. The issue was not to
  decide whether projects had to get a separate account: they do need
  one, including a private CVS repository, mailing lists and a web
  account for their own needs. The problem is to know where to store
  their personnal web pages. Currently, they are scattered in
  /software/teamname and /teamname, AFAIR.

  Did you (the webmasters) decide where to host translation teams
  "coordination" personnal webpages?

- about whether a translation team (web-only, or broader) should be
  marked as part of the GNU project on the Savannah website, I suggest
  we ask the policy question to RMS. It is possible to create another
  group type called " translation teams" with special
  creation rules, and it is also possible to create 2 projects for
  non-web-only translation teams (one for, one for

  What do you think?
