I think that's about code changes, and possibly during release
preparation too.

Obviously, it would be ideal if every translation line got checked by at
least one person other than the translator. But if our choice is
between turning away work or accepting it and hoping for review later, I
think the second way would be best.

Maybe a good way to handle this would be to ping the current Korean
translator(s) and see if they can handle the patches. If they don't
respond, or say they don't have time to handle Kang Jeong-Hee's patch,
then... well, just give Kang Jeong-Hee the ability to commit directly.
There's no reason for the translation to go unmaintained just because
some people hit a busy patch at work or whatever...

Or maybe the above is what Jens is already planning?
