IIRC, translations need a proper CLA signing process (ie not
click-through), since they are shipped in the ISO and everything. If
Legal can confirm we're OK with click-through, I'll be happy as a dog
with two tails. :-)

Since Transifex uses the Fedora Account System to identify translators
(members of the cvsl10n group), we'll need to solve this on that
level. For example, we could state that "cvsl10n" requires
"cla-clickthrough-done" instead of "cla-done", and so joining the
group would be much easier. Not sure if this can be done before FAS2,
mmcgrath could know.
