Ok, I took another look and I found some emails. The system seems to
be handling 99% spam, but I found a few others. However, I only really
found uploading of descriptions, no GETs. How are you getting the text
to translate and send? Building the emails by hand?

Is that the use case, getting through simple changes? In that case
what you really want is that a "coordinator" can do "force submit" or
some such. Would that cover it?

There is also a response from one person who would like to use the
mail interface. Given that we can open the discussion about whether it
should look like the current interface or start using PO files. I have
no experience with them myself but I'm told they are the standard way
of handling translations.

Any comments on that part?
