Which is why Weblate could actually help. It will lower the initial
barrier to
let people translate just few things they care about and translation team
just approve it.

Just a small comment: This is a really bad idea. Experience has time and
time again shown that this type of ‘drive-by translation’ (as done in
Ubuntu’s Rosetta/Launchpad) does much more harm than good. The
translations are usually done by people that don’t know the linguistic
guidelines of the translation team, haven’t translated the rest of the
application, and thus can’t ensure a consistent translation, and,
frankly, often don’t have the linguistic capabilities or technical
knowhow to do good translations (yes, of course there are exceptions).


And many teams do not need this type of collaboration, as the are
100% fully translated currently.

What about merging translations fixes in multiple branches? Upstream vs factory
vs released openSUSE, the other issue Tomas was trying to address... ;-)
