No problem about that, I created the account and applied to join the project upon a suggestion from Raphaël.
We thought that it might make things easier and I wasn't aware of the message above.

So from now on I will send .po files through BTS, one question though: is it one bug report per modified file or one per dpkg translation update? If so should I send the .po files themselves or, as I previously did, a git generated patch?

I won't answer for other French translators as I am a new comer but I find this kind of tool very handy. It eases the process of translation, review and it makes the translation status clearer.
