Yes, we are already a team and we have many enthusiastic people around us willing to contribute to the project as mentioned earlier by Hari. I will take up the responsibility of coordinating the project.

The team is in process of making the translations simple for every one and we have been having discussions on the same.

It will be easy to speed up the process of translation if we have the cvs access (at least one for the team)

Om shall be co-ordinating the efforts. I'd rather be a contributing
member at this moment although I can make decisions on translations as
I've had experience reviewing the Kannada translations for (mediawiki,
moodle, gaim [now pidgin], django). Om and I would be working closely
with discussions. We've discussed about this. We would surely not be
relying on third party for exercising judgement. All I meant was that
we'll also be *inviting feedback*.

Well, you don't need to. :-)
We're already a team.

Kindly point us to the guidelines you've posted. We would be very glad
to read through them and follow.

How about giving our team the CVS access? We just need one account so
that updating the translations would speed up. Om doesn't seem to have
CVS write access yet.
