I totally agree we should make it simpler.
On a related topic, technically, nowadays a translator might even not
need to have a FAS account to contribute translations, since the CLA
is needed to join a team. However, this is something outside of the
abilities of L10n. Probably a topic for the logistics list.
> Another thing: are GPG keys really used by translators in any task? I've been contributing for two years and never had a need to use it. Can they skip it please?
If a GPG is not needed to create a FAS account, we can remove those
sections. Feel free to test & remove the section.
