by simply having a few more people having the necessary rights to access
the machine and doing the work directly.

Having all languages there requires even more maintenance work over time
that I am not willing to spend if there is no active community

I stopped to add languages more or less when we started the 4.0.1
discussion ...

You will notice that initial 4.x projects use of course 4.x and not 4.0.
My understanding is that only the sdf files in svn count and Pootle is
just a tool. And in future the po files in svn counts instead of. I
don't think they have to be in sync. But anyway if people want to have
the overhead I am fine as long as I don't have to do the work.
