Sorry, I pressed the wrong key and sent an incomplete email.

Some ideas, not new ones, some of them they used to be in the old i18n

1. It is necessary to have a way to block the upload of a .po file
which is being translated by other person of the team.
2. If a translator blocks a file for translation, it shouldn't be
forever. There must be a timeout.
3. Emails should be sent to the team coordinator in every event
(block, commit, timeout)
4. Team management features, if possible. It would allow management of
the team's members and the rights for each one of them. It may be
necessary to block temporarily some member until he/she contacts the
team leader, in order to correct something previously committed.

With 1 and 2, there's no need to contact the coordinator to do
something. There shouldn't be 'what now' situations.
I encourage other team coordinators to add their ideas too.

kind regards
