If the various projects are fine with this, we could have a very small
translators project. Every translator could be a member of this project,
so we could have a script to do the necessary sync. We could also hold a
list of participating projects in ~i18n, or whatever.

However, this still doesn't change the base issue: with xorg (or
whatever), I'm personally quite uncomfortable every time we grow the
committers list[0], so I really don't think this is the best situation,
to be honest.

Again, it's not that I distrust translators specifically, it's just that
I'm a cynical bastard when it comes to dumping code in something as
unimportant as, say, X.

And, as Debian proved, every single developer is a possible attack
