of who commits and when and could use them to build the list of active
translators) but might be more difficult for translations of documents
(since most do not use CVS for updating and just do translations on a "one
shot" basis).

and a way to recognize their status like we currently do for package
maintainers. Just think: we can easily see who manages a given package, but
we cannot do likewise for translated documentation in the DDP or the
