Need to rename Team

Asked by René Brandenburger


I have a typo in the name of my Team, unfortunately noticed it after i created the mailing list.
The Team is ubuntu-luxemburgish-translators, correctly spelled it would be ubuntu-luxembourgish-translators (notice the additional "o") and the mailing list is <email address hidden> .
The mailing list has just been created, so there's no traffic yet.

sorry for the inconvinience

Hi René,

As you are bringing that up, and as the Luxembourgish translators are part of the Ubuntu translators group, I wanted to let you know about the policies we are discussing to implement for all Ubuntu translation teams in Launchpad:

For the Luxembourgish team, this would simply mean the following:

1. Changing the name in Launchpad from 'ubuntu-luxemburgish-translators' to 'ubuntu-l10n-lb', which is the naming scheme the majority of teams follow already.

2. In addition to that, I would recommend against using a Launchpad mailing list in this case. The reason we do not recommend the creation of Launchpad mailing lists for translation teams is because we encourage a model in which only a few translators (the team members in Launchpad) can act as reviewers, while everyone with a Launchpad account can submit suggestions. Using a Launchpad mailing list does not allow communication between all contributors, since only members of the team can subscribe to them. Instead, I'd recommend requesting the creation of an official Ubuntu mailing list for your translation team by sending an e-mail to rt(at)ubuntu(dot)com. The name of the list should match the name of the team in Launchpad (ubuntu-l10n-<language code>). If you do not receive a response, or if you need any help, you can also contact the translations team at

Do you think you could look into those? Thanks!

I've removed the list - we'll need that anyway; can rename per David's advice above when you let us know you're happy to go ahead.
