The short answer: I don't know. We have a lot of work to do before the
move and we're only at the beginning. See the spec here:

We're currently working on the Puppet modules to bring up an instance
in the OpenStack Infrastructure, but there's still all the tooling
around it to write once we have that going so we have feature parity
with the current system.

Once we have something for the translations team to help with I'll be
in touch here on list.
