And that should be reason for me to disable this persons access? Because 
you don't know him?

So far, you've only told me you don't know him, you haven't told me that 
this person is producing bugs you need to fix, and how should I know if 
you don't tell me? Is that the case? Is that person actually messing up 
translations and producing 'bugs'? If so, let me know, and I'll have a 
word with him, and if required disable his access. But I'm not going to 
do that just because you don't know him.

IMO, yes.

If you are the coordinator, and hold the majority of commits, then you 
do have the option of becoming a maintainer. If you chose to do so, you 
are in a position to release the module from the current translator and 
make it available again. If you want to put yourself into that position, 
that is fine with me, but *I* am not going to disallow somebody to 
participate, because somebody else doesn't know him (or her for that 
matter). Question remains, do you know for a fact that this person is 
producing 'bugs'?
