PSF Translation Workgroup Charter
Purpose & Common Goals
The initial purpose of this workgroup, as inspired by PEP545 and other translation efforts, is to support and encourage the translation of PSF documents and Python documentation generally into languages other than English as needed by various Python communities world-wide. The key role of this work group, at least initially, will be to identify priorities and infrastructure needed to support translations, and to coordinate efforts of various communities to contribute translations.
This workgroup will be active indefinitely at the pleasure of the PSF board.
Core Values & Internal Governmence
The core values for this group are:
- Positive Atmosphere
The workgroup adopts the PSF Code of Conduct (https://www.python.org/psf/codeofconduct/). Any actions (found by a majority) made against the principles in the Code of Conduct will result in the acting person being removed from the workgroup.
Membership should include native speakers of major languages other than English, particularly (but not exclusively) including Spanish, Portuguese, and Chinese. This is not a limitation and speakers of other languages are encouraged.
Membership will be open to anyone who is interested in the translation of PSF materials and Python documentation. Majority consensus will approve members.
Rules & Guidelines
- Any rules and guidelines will be voted upon by the working group as needed. The working group is ultimately under the oversight of the PSF board and any disputes or unresolved issues may be referred to the board for a decision.
Decision Making Procedures
- Decisions will be made by majority vote on the mailing list
- Discussion of projects/proposals will also occur on the mailing list
The team will communicate via mailing list - email@example.com. If needed, conference calls can be set up.
