Hi everyone.

Because we know that translators come and go, and because we're deep into
the Xenial Xerus cycle [1], it's time to start working on the translations
for the various packages and applications provided by the Xubuntu team.

With the goal of making it easier for new people to jump in contributing,
we put up a list of translations that are important for Xubuntu in
the Xubuntu Contributor Documentation page [2], where not only you'll find
a list of several projects the Xubuntu team maintains and/or are important
for Xubuntu, but also a section about the translation guidelines for
Xubuntu packages.

Being the most important, our primary targets for translations are the ones
that only exist in Xubuntu. SInce these packages only exist in our flavor,
their translation is up to the Xubuntu translators solely.

Two further calls will be held through out the development cycle for the
others packages, which are the ones built for, and used by Xubuntu, and the
ones used by, and essential, for Xubuntu.

If you've never contributed a translation before and your native language
is not English but you have really good English skills and are comfortable
using software in English, you can make a huge contribution by helping to
translate the Xubuntu applications into your native language

Before you start translating, we recommend joining the Ubuntu-translators
mailing list [3] to keep up with notifications about important translation
template updates and to stay in touch with other Ubuntu translators
