In #966896: Clean up list of translations projects on http://drupal.org/project/Translations Gabor pointed out that before we retire the old translation projects completely (the ones listed on http://drupal.org/project/Translations), we need to figure out what to do with regard to issues for translation projects.
I see three main options:
- Use the d.o. issue queue, with a component per language. Would be a monster big dropdown, though. We'd need a block on each translation team page showing issues tagged for that language.
- Or make a content type for issues on l.d.o. Would need to give people who aren't team members permission to create such issues, and a block or page showing the open issues per langauge.
- ...or just go along as we do now: People who aren't member of the translation team in question write here (and teams/adminstrators may or may not see the issues), and issues within the translation group are handled by discussions on the team pages. #702440: Last comments block would make it easier to keep track of what happens on the group, and I guess administrators could be instructed to keep an eye on this queue.
From my point of view the last one is good enough, but I'm only contributing to small languages with very few active translators. I'm guessing bigger teams might need better tools.
