Ah, finally, someone ;) The thing is that we are *still* involved in it ;)
Last sunday (or Saturday) I did some commits.
Thank you for confirming :-)

Actually it has, and you can apply to it via the web interface...

Not sure. You mean there's no difference between someone who jumps in and put
his name there because a new system has just been installed and the field was
blank and between a team who did 90% of the translation in the last weeks and
which is *still* translating ? ;)

No, the PO headers list *all* the translators, not only the last one. So
everyone get their credits.
About the 'human factor': when a new system is installed, it should consider
what was already in place in terms of who was doing what. If someone comes by
chance and fills a blank field because the system is very recent (and the
community is not even aware of such a change yet), then the responsible
should say, 'OK sorry, but there's already a team translating, why not
contact them first ?'.

I'm not asking more than that. But if you do all of the translation and
someone says thank you to someone else than you, then there's a problem ;)
