This is great stuff!

I was thinking of having the translators part with a bit more details
(for instance to expect to take some time to have your account approved)
and screenshots. Also include the review part of it (at least for the
website stuff). Maybe you and Tommy can work together on it? Let me know
if I can help as well.

From the perspective of the translator, things like who translated the
glossary, how things get approved, who makes the final call on terms etc
Are also information they would like to know, to better understand how
things works.

Yes, please, maybe not take over but ask Dragana  to have someone from
Tor (maybe you?) with permission to do so as well? I think this is a bad
bottleneck, because we are doing outreach to get people to help and they
are not necessary always aware of it. Like it happened recently.
Let me know if I can help here in any way.

Nice! I had no idea we already had those! this is great. So I guess what
we need to do is to add in the wiki how that will work. I think we can
start with the folks you have and if we find problems and feel we need
another person to review it we could try community members. But lets try
the ones that are there already first.

thanks a lot for this update! Lots of things I didn't know. Lets talk
more on Wednesday o/
