I'm the main translator for the French language, and I'm glad you're willing to

There's no need to give your copyright to the FSF to contribute to the 
translation of Guix. Individual contributors keep their copyright.

There is an issue with the current po files though, as they don't list the 
correct license. They are currently under "the same license as the guix 
package" (gpl3+), but it should be "the same license as the guix manual" 
(gfdl). As long as you agree to this change, I can let you contribute :)

I see that I'm not specifically assigned to the cranslation of the manual, so 
as long as you accept the above-mentionned change you can simply use the robot 
at the TP.

Note that we are planning to move to a weblate instance soonish, but we're 
still using the TP for now.
