Adding yum translation submissions to Fedora's Transifex?

I've just sent the initial Finnish translation for yum
<> which is why I'd like to discuss
about enabling Transifex submissions for yum.

Yum is already listed in Fedora's Transifex at
<>, but
translation submissions are not allowed. There are some projects in
Fedora's Transifex which are considered as upstream projects separate
from Fedora, but still accept translation submissions (for example
Avahi, PulseAudio and PackageKit).

Would it be possible to enable translation submissions via Transifex? I
think it would make the whole submission process a lot simpler,
translators wouldn't have to make trac tickets and developers wouldn't
have to manually commit translations attached to those tickets. I
believe this might increase the number of translations and lead to yum
having more up-to-date translations.

I don't know the exact technical details of enabling the commits, but if
the yum developers are interested, we could talk about it with the
Fedora Translation Project.
