Hi all,

After localization to English, Chinese, Greek, Portuguese, Catalan, and Indonesian, it is maybe time to start up a Russian Ask-and-Answer for the Fedora Project.

Admins, what are the requirements to get a with Cyrillic letters going?

Since I am not a Russian native, I'd like to link to link this Q here in order to start networking

Does anyone here know @maxim in person? He could be a facilitator for a new ask.fedora language...

In practice, it would be best to have just one forum, I think. English is the most alive one, and if a user doesn't know English, I wouldn't see any problem in posting it here anyway. Some other fellow could translate it and the possibilities of solving the issue faster would be much bigger.

It is a matter of having moderators for Russian and you should fill up a ticket on devel list so it can be review it to see what is needed

Since I am not part of the Russian Fedora Community, I let the Russian speaking users decide whether they want to go ahead and initiate the process. All information is out now... Thanks!!

This is covered at :

If you want language support enabled for any other languages, find a team of volunteers (preferably, long term Fedora contributors) to act as moderators for that language. Ideally we will need at least three moderators for each language community.

Да!!! Необходимо добавить поддержку русскоязычной ветки. Специалистам из России есть что спросить и чем поделиться с остальными. Как сказал один из участников: "English is the most alive one, and if a user doesn't know English, I wouldn't see any problem in posting it here anyway." - не соглашусь с ним. Любой продукт приобретает известность при достаточной доступности документации, обсуждений, инструкций, советов и руководств. Современные поисковые системы настроены таким образом, что выдают результат изначально на родном языке. stackoverflow к примеру содержит русскоязычную ветку. И там не выжженная пустыня. Там цветущий оазис. Так давайте не будем пользоваться предрассудками. Мне понадобилась информация о Fedora 23 и поисковик выдал очень скудный результат. был найдет только целенаправленным поиском. Развитие сообщества, обменивающегося мнением и опытом, будет только тогда, когда увеличится численность сообщества.

@RemiZOffAlex: As long as we are here in the English forum, it would be helpful to stick to English language. Otherwise, not many people will understand and be able to answer what you wrote here above.

Moreover, I think, you should copy this as a comment of the question since you are referring to @Fer 's comment.
