devrel should contact you to set up your account.
You're right about the quiz being useless at assessing whether a doc
translator would be up to the task but a Lead/Follow-up Translator is also a
Doc Dev and a Gentoo Dev and it is fair to expect any dev has a minimum of
knowledge about Gentoo.
I trust the devrel team take the position asked into account when assessing a
candidate's answers to the quiz.
Considering you won't be able to screw up portage, I hope it won't take too
long to set you up.
FWIW, I was quite happy with the answers you sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Given the contacts we've had on IRC and the translations you have already
submitted on b.g.o, I am quite confident you'll do a good job and your
mentorship period should not last too long, depending on your activity of course.
