I think it can still be extended, these are my wishes : 

1. translators should be able to be responsible for the PO of their
choice. There are maintainers for each packages, then there must be a
maintainer for each po file.

2. as a maintainer / developer is warned when a bug is filled in
bugzilla, the translator should be warned when his / her po has been
automatically updated. Could Bugzilla be used for this ?

3. yell on developpers to update the translation into the packages.
Smolt is an example in Fedora 7 : either there is an enormous bug,
either the translations have not been included.
