I agree, it should be moved to nongnu.

Ok, I didn't know that.

Well, I've just discussed that with RMS this week and we've
concluded that translation teams' homepages will go into:


(reference: <>)

But, this decision doesn't mean that the savannah projects CVS
should be tied to that location. Most of the translation leaders
have access to through the www projects, so there's
no need for extra CVS on those projects. Is that possible to
setup on savannah? ie. having no CVS access at all for a project?

Anyway, this is something we have to discuss with the team
leaders. If they feel they need CVS access for their own teams'
pages we could always tie them to

Could you give me a complete list of CVS maps for web-only

I'll draw a discussion plan and it would be nice to have all the
different cases on the table. If you can't, how can I get it,
from sysadmin?

I guess its policy on translation teams being GNU is clear,
as he decided to locate the teams' home pages under

That would be useful and would make things clearer for everyone.
Thus, we could have the web-only projects for special cases, as
you mentioned before, and web translations teams. The GLUGs
pages should be on, in my opinion.

Sorry, I don't understand that. Are you talking about the arabic
project? Then, I guess that only one project is needed, the one
for translation. People who want to help translating
GNU software into other languages should ask the maintainer to
join the software project on savannah or ask how to proceed.
