This has been running for quite a while now. A small group of french-speaking Ubuntu translators got together and is offering a french issue for UWN. It is published on the french-speaking ubuntu-fr site : http://www.ubuntu-fr.org/lettre/ and is referred to as “Lettre Hebdomadaire Ubuntu”.
This project has now its own sub-forum : http://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/viewforum.php?id=49 and I’ll post tutorials on how to join, and other news. Everyone welcome :-)
