Hello there!

We [the long time Spanish translators] are suffering from having a
open to anyone with an openSUSE account. Translations are submitted
any kind of proofreading, which can lead to already translated and
proofread strings being overwritten.
Unfortunately, there is a Spanish translator doing that. For those
interested there is a message about it in opensuse-translation-es;

Therefore, I suggest switching Weblate's access control from "public" to
"protected"; translations by new members must be approved first.


Which translator?

Now, will a team with moderators or coordinators rule as I proposed

Do you have any proposal how to approve translators, that they are allowed
to translate in "protected" mode? We are an open source project and
everybody is allowed to contribute. So it is public.

Well, we could make translators/reviewers to long-time translators. I suggest
jcsl, victorhck and myself. I have already talked with them and we all agree
on this change; making Weblate protected and privileges given.
Being admins as well for Spanish (to make give others privileges in the
future) would also be helpful.
Anyone can contribute, but not all can write. Meritocracy :-)

We can review all and you can watch all changed things in Weblate in the
History. There is a button "Revert", if you have to watch impossible

I agree with Stephan. It's more work to revert changes than to review them.

You can discuss that on your mailinglist (like you are doing) then and if
you don't watch any changes, we should think about locking this

We don't know if that person is subscribed to our mailing list (opensuse-
translation-es). Anyways, jcsl has sent an email to that list describing what
it has happened and suggestions to improve the translation process.

Can you give us his nickname, please?Then we can look after his

I will, but privately.
