We also have the IAB I18n program (https://www.iab.org/activities/programs/internationalization-program/), which I lead at the moment.  If there are others with interest in i18n-related topics, please send me a message offline to explore how you can help.  We really need folks with clue and energy to pitch in if we want the Internet to continue to get better for a diverse set of users.

If there are documents you need help with, feel free to ask the program, and we'll see what we can do.
