Re: Revive Belarusian community

NNTP-Posting-Host:  63.245.214.181

Hi Hanna,
this is great news. There's already at least one person who was 
interested in contributing (meequz)
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/mozilla.dev.l10n/dxf7HliMGE4/DuM1EYjRBQAJ

Translation is currently available through Pontoon
https://pontoon.mozilla.org/be/

The first projects to localize in order of priority would definitely be 
Firefox (desktop, android), and mozilla.org (I need to restore the 
previous content before exposing the project on Pontoon).

I think the first step would be to create an account on Pontoon and get 
in touch with :meequz to see how to organize the work.

As a new user you would only be able to submit suggestion, so I will 
need to upgrade your permissions to be able to submit translations and 
manage other users.
