we should add that people can request an account for Pootle via the
mailing list and we will handle this on demand. The advantage is that
their suggestions are under their name and not under nobody. But they
don't have further rights at the moment. Their suggestions are handled
in the same way as patches and have to be reviewed by a committer.

We take translation in the same way serious as normal coding work. But
we keep following our approach to propose active translators quite fast
as committer. We need people who speak a language to be ale to review.

I think we should call for as many as possible volunteers. We have
already some further languages added in the 4.0 project. And I will add
further languages on demand (if somebody steps up and want to start) or
over time.

NOTICE: we will definitely have one further update of some string at the
end of the week. But that shouldn't be a big problem and can probably be
handled via he Pootle server completely.
