Were these questions answered already?

Here are some short notes, just in case.
if you need longer answers mail me to the oferwa AT bgu DOT ac DOT il.

That was the deal so far.
I think Sinuhe has a different opinion on this.
You should consult with him and with RMS on a final answer for this one.

We prefer the suitable translation team to approve the translation.
If we don't have a translation team we ask the sender if he would like to form 
one, if he does the document is automatically approved by the translaiton team 
If it's just a random translation, we would try to find someone (a users group 
or a webmaster who accidently knows the language) who can give us a shallow 
observation of the translation quality (we won't publish very bad translations. 
That way we can also avoid bogus translations). If none works, we make a guess 
on the translation quality based on the text shape, and a lot of intuition, and 
if it seems OK, we'll publish it.

These have to do with webmasters and sys-admins. Sinuhe and RMS can help you 
with these.
