I know. Sorry, I forgot to response to the gist of the email.

I for one would be very interested in how people outside of the
translators perceive the results of the DDTP. Do people appreciate how
much effort goes into making all these translations?

But yes, the whole issue of anonymous contributors is clearly hot,
though I don't personally understand the issue. I added users mostly
because people wanted statistics, it was never really intended as a
true authentication issue (there's no actual state of options to
remember). Would it make it easier if you could use a federated login
like openid? Then the password becomes less of an issue.

In the new system I'm intending to make it more flexible, so you can
be more specific about what different types of contributors can do.
But you can also make everyone equal if you want. It will be up to
language coordinators to decide, since it looks like getting everyone
to agree will be impossible.

So, yes, I think a survey would be good, but I have no idea what kind
of questions you could ask to get answers that would be useful.

Have a nice day,
