Which I don't see happening before several months...

I actually still need to see if the current "assignment" feature is
able to address these needs

This is clearly something that needs to be implemented yet. We
mentioned this during the Extremadura i18n meeting as one of the key
features. At that moment, it was pretty hard for all of us to figure
all this out because the experience with Pootle inside the i18n people
was still very low.....and the experience of our procedures and needs
among the Wordforge people was still low as well.

The concept of teams and team review policies could easily be
something that we include as a goal for a GSOC project.

Actually, it's already possible to define you as the only person able
to admin the Debian Installer Dutch project. However, for this, I need
you to defin Dutch among your languages in

This is partially possible, I think, with the permissions management
