The current coordinator of the Japanese translation team for the Python documentation is Kinebuchi-san, who has been actively working with Inada-san(@methane) on the translation for many years. Unfortunately, for personal reasons, Kinebuchi-san is currently unable to participate as actively as he used to. Therefore, I, Atsuo Ishimoto, would like to volunteer as an additional coordinator to help manage the Github repository and Transifex.
I have had the following involvement with Python.
Python user since the mid-1990s
Establishment of a Python mailing list in Japan
Development and maintenance of Python for the Japanese version of Windows
Started a project to translate Python documentation into Japanese.
It would probably be great to get an approval of the actual coordinator on the PR, but if not mandated by the PEP 545: we’re humans.
There’s almost nothing formally written about the coordinator role, as I wanted each translation team to handle it independently. It’s just that having a point of contact per translation can proove usefull to relay important informations or things like that.
Happens that “not writing things down” leads to “let’s ask Julien” (which is not a problem, and I’m happy to reply) while I’ve written this PEP trying to not become a SPOF
