I guess this is a decision about how to handle translations just for
the package debian-reference in particular.

I know that other Debian packages are handled using weblate too, at
least for several languages. The debian-handbook comes to mind.

I am a weblate user (translator) in hosted.weblate.org for other
project (F-Droid) and when I login, I can lock a translation so it
only allows me work on it. Maybe that's a workaround for all the
languages that have a translation-maintainer that does not work with

Weblate also allows to members of a project to receive notifications
about many different events that happen (updated strings, updated
translations, new people joining the project, etc). Maybe that helps, too.

CC'ing Osamu Aouki, the maintainer of debian-reference package,
(probably knowing how is the current workflow or having better ideas
than me).

Maybe a mention of the proposed workflow for translator should be made
in the README file, too. I suggest to use
as reference, since that project also uses weblate for some languages,
and the usual git commits for others.
