For translators we are already informally doing it, and if I understood 
correctly the biggest obstacle is that (permissions aside) the Pootle 
installation we have available lacks support for many languages (and 
Juergen already discussed this with infra, even though I can't find a 
JIRA issue for this).

If, after 3.4.1 is out, we want to focus on getting more localization 
volunteers, this would be one of the tools. But we need to fix the 
infrastructure first (again, I'm not talking about permissions, but 
about the fact that we have existing OpenOffice translations that cannot 
be put in Pootle due to incomplete language support on the Pootle 
installation at Apache).
