Yes, translators. And there was no discussion yet. Grand plan is to use
transifex and everything more or less works (testing version is on
transifex.gentoo.ru) but we are going to move on transifex.net and
update everything for upcoming transifex-1.x. Once done we'll announce
this since we'll need to attract translators and I guess this experience
could be of interest for others too.

We need branches (for workflow - one for translators and one for
editors) and speed (it's pain to use CVS history to see changes) and too
many problems we are all well aware about :) CVS has no advantages for
documentation so may be we just move gentoo repository on git?
