So how does this work for Pootle integration and the L10n workflow?
At the present time, all translation-ready (i18n-ized) Sugar packages
have special gituser "pootle" added as a committer. Lang admins can
click "Commit to VCS" in Pootle and the commit is made (on their
behalf) by the priv'ed pootle gituser.
Simple to manage at set-up time for new Sugar Activities/packages
(make sure git user "pootle" has commit.) Simple to manage lang admin
privs via Pootle admin user interface.
What workflow has the equivalent simplicity in github? I can tell you
there is no way that breaking out languages or localizers as
individual contributors to a repo (eliminating the special poolte
user) is going to work out well.
