I'd say it's vertical ;), but anyway, like a new "Category" with the
total number of packages translated with the corresponding percentage.

Could you do that then? I've talked with some other members and they

Yes please. =) Also what's the purpose of the alias one? I'd like to
see the "real name" as mandatory and the "alias" as optional, or
simply removed, but that being global would have to be agreed with
the other teams I suppose.

Yes. For at several reasons:

  * Give credit where credit is due. I like to acknowledge the work
    that translators do, and having their name there is an easy way.
  * Being able to tell people (by mail for example), if they make
    repeated mistakes, so that they can avoid them in the future.
  * It could be used to request updates to translations in the same
    way it's done for .po files, but maybe that's too heavyweight?
  * Also it's nice to see the work history of the people.

One question that came to my mind now is, what about the copyright of
the translated works? Do we "assume" that translators disclaims it?
And under which license?
