Hi Henning,
so if a translator will commit to 'maintaing' a particular package
translation, would that be a demonstration of the same commitment to the
'project' like software package maintaing and could then lead to him/her
being a DD? 

Maybe make the translations be in a seperate package so that
they can have names associated to them and lead to the translator being
'responsble' to our users and maintain a real packages? (of course
this would never happen for many reasons-size,splitting things up,etc.)
