OK.  I think we have a volunteer project admin for the AOO Pootle
project.  That is Raphael, right?

Most of us are not familiar with how it was handled before, so it is
good to discuss the details, so we all understand it.

Right now it is configured so all Apache committers can login and have
review and commit rights.  Non-logged in users (everyone else) can
view, suggest and submit translations.

What are we missing?

Would it work, for example, if the translation leads become Apache committers?

We discussed this a while back, that it may be necessary at some point
to have an ooo-10n mailing list.
