> I have a more generic question about how to apply doc translation patched
to the httpd project. Newcomers (like it was for me not long ago) needs to
wait a bit of time to get their patches code reviewed and committed (if the
quality meets the bar); I like this workflow a lot because it allows people
to learn a lot without breaking anything, but the downside is that those
patches might loose traction and get queued in the big list in bugzilla for
long time. This issue seems to be more relevant when people sending patches
related to translations do not find a committer that can validate the
language grammar and push the change, like it has happened recently. What
is your recommendation about the workflow to follow to keep the momentum
and attract more people to the httpd doc project?

Good question.

While we can tweak the process and perhaps rely more on github forks and
pull requests, at the end of the day the solution is to increase the number
of docs committers willing to review the reviews and commit the changes.

The number of volunteer hours will always be a gating factor.  All we can
do is pay attention to careful contributors and extend commit invitations
as appropriate, and ask those newly minted committers to also help with the
process of incorporating other translations.
