Team policy. That's one of the tasks of team coordinators. We need
them to be able to "unassign" translations

Team policy. Either the team wants a review to happen and the
translation waits indefinitely....or it is considered as reviewed as
long as a given delay (which is set per team per project) occurs. And,
in any case, this can be overriden by the team coordinator

Team policies....:-)

As we already wrote in the i18n infrastructure specs, the processes
should not be hardcoded in the software but they have to be completely
flexible. This need is taken into account in pootle specs.
