- I have not seen the translator who made introduction matching with the 
username who sent cvsl10n group application. But I might just miss out.

- While I have not heard any further push for approval from any user via 
ML, personal mail nor irc channel. But he/she can be shy to do so and 
choose being patient.

Did we miss out anyone?  If so please shout!
