The Fedora Translation (L10N) and Documentation projects have *not* been
merged.  But we are trying to work more closely with them.  That's a
longer discussion than you need in this thread, though! :-)

Translators are *definitely* eligible for cvsdocs membership.  As for a
self-introduction, I only found this:

I heard Karsten making some insightful noise the other day about our
lackluster model for CVS sponsorship.  We haven't really seen any
benefits from the idea, and it may be time to reconsider.

That may not really affect you, Josep, other than that you will want to
go ahead and do a "genuine" self-introduction¹ (just to fulfill the
project requirements), and then we can get you access.  If you're
comfortable with CVS, you will have no problem at all translating
directly from our files.  You will probably want to be subscribed to the
"fedora-docs-commits" mailing list so that you know when guides you care
about are updated.
