[Translators-l] Drop down banner - Italian translations needed

Hey guys,

So I wanted to do two things, firstly a brief keeping you guys in the loop
on the state of the international fundraiser and what to expect over the
coming months.

As many of you may know from the metric's meetings and emails to the
wikimedia-l list last november, the plan is to shift from the big push
annual fundraiser to a more subtle, lower impact year round fundraiser.
This is going to be happening over the coming months and I am sure that
more details about how exactly this will happen will appear in time.

With regards to the international portion of the 12/13 fundraiser, we
intend to restart testing in the top ten languages in the coming weeks,
with the remainder of languages following later on. This means that you
will start seeing translation requests coming in somewhat regularly over
the coming months. Most of work that was done will still be used so nothing
has gone to waste but there is a greatly expanded thank you portion to the
fundraiser featuring numerous editors from all backgrounds that will
require alot of work.

We are going to aim to try and keep a torrent of notifications from being
sent out so some will be sent out in batches via a bot as well as through
this mailing list to at least reduce some of the annoyance.

If you have any questions feel free to ask here or email me.

The final thing I wanted to ask is I could really do with some
*Italian *translations
for this request:

Italian is going to be the first of the big languages to undergo a big
testing phase.

Thank you :)
