This sounds good for the time being!

Few modifications to what Noriko has explained above...

How about,

1. A new person joins fedora-trans-list (and fedora-trans-<lang>, if
exists) and provide the self introduction first showing the willingness
or the ability to contribute in FLP.
2. Then s/he becomes the FLP member and can request for FAS account (For
the specific language, if possible)
3. After that the respective language co-ordinator (OR FAS FLP sponsors,
in case language co-ordinator doesn't exist) can approve/reject account
