 You yourself said that a translation is locked once it's through the
"review" process and can't be touched again, with the reasoning to not
do any more harm. I took your word for it, and my further question on
that topic went unresponded.

 It's fine that you do not agree, but you also know that lots of people
do, given regular reports about such issues as the enigma case, which
you might call a single spot which it isn't but clearly showed how far
the proofreading concept and anonymous approach really works.

 erm, received a patch today, rather, and I don't see any confirmation
that it got accepted?
