Do you mean if somebody takes a module and forgets about it? The 
designated maintainer of a module, Sarah, and myself can release a 
module. Since we haven't assigned any maintainers yet, it's just us two. 
The next upgrade will release them automatically after a certain period 
of non-commit. For now, emailing this list and telling us will have to do.

What do you mean with grab? For the purpose of modification? What if you 
do that while somebody else is in the process of translating the module? 
Everyone can just grab the module anytime, they just can't commit
