I would say that the important thing is to have a review, not that it is
on this list. svn-jp seems more appropriate, since many of the members of
dev@subversion won't understand what you're talking about anyway:-) We
usually give reviewers credit in the log messages, though. If you do this,
we will know that there was review. This is one reason I don't like the
two-translators required proposal that was made here some week ago. If you
get reviews from non-developers and there is one translator that's enough
IMO.

Not sure, actually. IMO, I don't think it's a problem if you get some
unused messages from trunk. An update is more than a merge and I don't
know how we handle this in other cases if there are any.

My 2 cents,
