Joomladay charter and Translation Partners

Post by ibnhafsun » Wed Feb 07, 2007 12:40 pm

My question was:
Can someone explain me in a few words why we need to contact your partners (website owners) to run an event? Have they any kind of priority or monopoly (the fact that the hosting site is commercial or not is irrelevant here for Joomla!)?
And brian response was:
Its just down to the joomladay charter. (not sure if that is publicaly visible)

Basicaly there is a section in the charter to allow translation partners first refusal at operating a joomladay.
first refusal: the privilege of deciding whether to accept or reject something before it is offered to others
Translation Partners are not community websites (just websites of the Joomla! community).

Just private websites that may or may not be community oriented.

Even more: on a last check most of them were commercial websites, at least under the EU laws (and some illegal too), and they are "transparent" to the project. The web sites owners are getting the Official Translation Partner Logo and Status, the community efforts are being redirected to these websites (try to ask for a bork translation and you will be redirected to the bork translation partner, which in most cases is the owner of the official translation partner website, which in most cases have ads and self promotion, which in...).

This is not a courtesy is a privilege. I can understand a courtesy but not a commercial advantage.

Note: edited to be readable.

I´ll do so if you point me to the UG Joomladay charter as it would be the better place to talk about this.

If not, any mod, please, split my post and put it where it should be.

(may be if you report my post as off topic a mod could do it asap to keep this thread clean... I can´t report my own posts!)
