On one hand I understand that the QA team would like more communication
between subgroups and their team, but the same happens for marketing or
communication. So it's not dedicated to QA, NL projects are always shy
about what they are doing. On the other hand each NL project has his on
way to build his community, sometimes only online, sometimes more during
live meetings, and this is one thing that should be taken into account
when setting general processes.

It's not working yet, I think that the e-mail issue is still not solved
and I didn't get news from Rob about it.

yes, that's a good solution.

We have already discussed this on the fr-qa list, so members are aware that:
- we may receive mails in English asking to translate the bug (currently
the bug is translated and should be also checked)
- we should soon receive mail from BSA that will report issues in French
and will need to be checked, searched for duplicates, and reported in
Bugzilla if needed.
As I said I'll document the BSA process in our team when it will work in
French for our members and in English for the other groups who would
like to join. BTW, I think that almost all the QA pages are translated
into French now.

Kind regards
