Ok. How about "On behalf of the members of the debian-i18n mailing list"

True, I will adapt the message here.

I've been contacting debian-release myself for some of my l10n-related
uploads (snort, portmap and, soon, remem). I do have to add a note, however,
that after the upload they have to ask debian-release to allow the package
through the freeze (and to not make any changes *besides* translations or the
release maintainers might not approve it)

I will add one at p.d.o

True, that's my copy & paste through mutt.

I will add the list to the mirrored copy of the BTS, running this through
crontab, however, seems like overkill, as it will clog the BTS periodically.
