+1, I think that this is what Fedora Translation project really needs.
If I look at ubuntu (lunchpad) or jamendo.com, I see that this strategy
works in awesome way!

Please, count me in for help!

- From system point of view, I'm not sure what's the best. But form I've
heard pootle isn't so bad.

- Regarding authentication processes, I think everybody should be free
to translate without login, but for direct commit only few people (team
leads) would have ability to commit translated text.

- I would integrate it to transfix, what do you think? How much work is it?
