And you'll need to have those updates published quickly!  Please send
notifications of your finished translations to
fedora-docs-list at redhat.com, cc: me and Karsten Wade, so we can get them
up on the web as quickly as possible.

If I am able to clear a click-to-accept CLA for Transifex with Legal,
how long would it take for you to implement that?  It sure would be nice
if translators didn't have to go through our awful process to work in

This is very true -- Transifex is a big step forward for community
translation process.  It's the things surrounding it that are creating
any hassle, and the sooner we can get them solved, the sooner more
translators and developers are going to appreciate the new opportunities
it creates!
