About creating a french community of Archers...

Hi,

we are 2 new archers who want to create a french community to support Arch Linux. We would like to make a site with docs, FAQs, Tips and a forum. We would like to translate the official documentation too and make an irc channel to help new users. Are you ok with this idea ? and Could it be possible to be hosted by www.archlinux.org with an adress like fr.archlinux.org for example ?

Please, tell us what you think about this idea.

Thank you.  smile

Heh, I suppose orelien isn't too keen on doing the translation himself at all cost, so if he's okay with it I assume there's no good reason from keeping you from helping us out here. smile

I'll send you all I've got in LaTeX format for easier translation once orelien proclaims his will to give up the french translation.

Thanks!

Re: About creating a french community of Archers...

I could help you out with translation and so on. Just,  my french isn't perfect, as I've only been living in a frenchspeaking region for 3 years, but we could always try.

On the hosting issue: I think it would be better to separate it from archlinux.org as it should be a user community, ergo inofficial. So, if we'd fuck up something, it wouldn't put down the whole archlinux-project!
We could try to get on sourceforge (they host a similar project for slackware) or we could try to get a server in germany, as they are cheap as hell over there (30€/mo for an XP2000MHz & 80GB traffic).

Anyway, feel free to contact me at greg at grabinski dot ch or icq #60814240 or msn lord_php@hotmail.com or yahoo 'schumithree'

Au revoir, mes amis!

LaTeX... humm yeah, never used it. Anyway, I think we should let native french speakers translate the doc.
We non-natives could do faqs and stuff.

I could write a CMS in PHP for this 'n admin the bbs or something...

d'accord, this would result a much better quality of the translation :-)
