[wp-polyglots] Persian translation disputes

1- This is my report on WP 3.0 status as you've asked about it: I released
the full Persian translation for single-site WP 3.0 ten days ago, and
multi-site WP 3.0 five days ago, so WP 3.0 is now fully translated into
Persian by WP-Persian (our team). I'd like to emphasize on "full
translation", because Mohammad's translation was full of errors and had so
many untranslated strings (original English strings are copied without even
being translated into Persian!), you can check the po file to see if I'm
right or not. Furthermore, Their submitted translation includes only
single-site WP 3.0 and not multi-site.

2- I have NOT received any kind of message from Mohammad. I should clearly
emphasize ANY message. He has also left the two emails I've sent him,

3- I really want to solve this issue but I think Mohammad doesn't, since he
has ignored all of my emails and has also used WP-Persian official name (in
Persian) and logo in his site's header which is NOT approved by us and is
against the copyright of name and logo.

> Hi,
> This is meant primarily for Gonahkar and Mohammad  who have been
> contacting me directly off-list, in an effort to defend their side of
> the issue.
> I'm posting the question here, for either the both of them to discuss
> it here, or else to discuss it among themselves. As I've repeatedly
> told both, we have no ownership of a locale's translation community
> and direct emails to me or Nikolay or chat pings simply aren't going
> to gain you any favors, mainly because we have no favors to
> distribute. We simply implement the tools and permissions a community
> has chosen to use.
> The situation as I see it:
> - Gonahkar (by direct email) took over the dormant Persian translation
> a while ago, intending to release 2.8
> - Mohammad then announced (on this list), that he had a complete
> translation of a 3.0 release
> - Gonahkar (by direct email), indicated that said translation as full
> of errors and that he was releasing WP 3.0 soon, no additional
> validators were needed
> - To which I told Mohammad to get in touch with the current Persian
> community and talk to them about synchronizing efforts
> - He apparently did, but with no success
> - I asked Mohammad to explain the issue on this list, which he failed
> to do, resorting instead to pinging me on chat everyday, several times
> a day.
> So:
> - Please, please (pretty please, with cherry on top) talk to each
> other, not me. I will not respond to any request made outside of  this
> list.
> - Gonahkar, could you tell the community about the status of the WP
> 3.0 release? If you are having troubles, please ask for help
> - Could you also answer Mohammad's questions, while you're at it?
> - If there are doubts on where to join the wp-polyglots list, see:
> http://lists.automattic.com/pipermail/wp-polyglots/
> Again, this message requires *no* answer other than starting a dialogue.
> Thanks
