Is the FLSCo running our teams alone?

Yes, (bi-)weekly meetings were hardly a success.

I think there are two issues here. First, we need to make a new
elections for FLSCo ASAP. Last time we chose members was around F9, I
Some of them are not around anymore, and some new active people
appeared. That's you, Kévin. :)

Second issue is accepting new teams in Transifex. I don't think one
needs to be in FLSCo to do that. As long as a maintainer-to-be follows
our guidelines, I don't see a problem when respected member of FLP
accepts the request.

That's great! We already see the results. :)
