 Doesn't work, "no longer available for review", "Package
translation ... gone". That's what I meant. You can't edit translations
your systems sees as done.

 Exactly. Noone needs to have any history with translating, and noone
commiting stuff through that interface can be sent any message about
what they might have done wrong, to improve their further contributions.

 So you think leaving it open to people with no history in translation
to work on these things is a good approach because you can't write it
all yourself? Sorry, but that's a pretty blindfold and naive approach
and is more hurting that it does good...

 So long,
