I think that my complains was part of Petr says ;) I even requested a
budget for that and have it under l10n item together with Jesus.

I've discussed about it with Moztrap developers. They say it's possible
but are not interested to participate or work on it. They are still
available for pointers, but not more.

Yes, I'm aware of that, and I'm really sad about it because I know
several members who are waiting for it to participate to QA, but there
is nothing I can do here if we don't find a django dev interesting to
work on l10n for Moztrap.
So for now, as I said, instead of having nothing because I believe it's
important for QA and LibO, I prefer we use it in English only and maybe
that will bring more interest to the tool itself too.

Thanks, have a nice evening too :)

Kind regards
