      Description

      We had an interesting conversation in the Core Team Call about the Sakai
      Translations.

      About 8 months ago I did a research about the status of the Sakai
      Translations, looked for the contacts and contributors of each language,
      sent emails to more than 40 people, surfed Confluence looking for
      information of the translations....got a small number responses from the
      community. I summarized the status here [1], based on the numbers of
      Transifex, the translation system that the community uses nowadays [2].

      We announce in our website [3] that "Complete or majority-complete
      translations of Sakai are available in more than 20 languages.", that's a
      good marketing argument but, in my opinion, some of the translations come
      from the 2000s and are completely dated and are not supported anymore.

      My proposal is moving these legacy translations [4] to Sakai Contrib as
      "Language Packs" and removing them from the Sakai 19 source, with the
      main goal of having healthy supported translations.

      [4] All the translations declared as "Unverified" except probably the
      fr_FR.
