Pessoal, boa noite.
Conforme thread abaixo, venho comunicar o encerramento desta lista de 
Esta medida foi tomada com base na pouca utilização destas listas de 
e-mail para localização, de agora em diante favor utilizar a lista 
Xfce-i18n, sugiro adicionar a tag do idioma [pt_BR] no assunto dos 
e-mails nesta lista.

Fico a disposição para esclarecer qualquer dúvida.

Hi all,

I'm agree with the short term plan.

Some lists are not used since ages (more than 4 years for the -pl or 
-cn), so I propose to close them now.
We can send a mail to semi actives lists (fr/de/br, in native language ? 
(anybody to help ? :))) which explain the plan, and redirect people to 
the global xfce-i18n.

About long term, I'm agree too. We need a big revamp of the translator 
wikis and simplify the "introduce" process ( 
https://wiki.xfce.org/translations / 
https://docs.xfce.org/contribute/translate/start ). Vinzenz, are you 
still motivated?

I'm available on freenode/#xfce-dev , so whoever wants to help on this 
topic, ping me :)
