Have you considered dropping an email to

effective and the docs team would prefer communication over a ban.

With an equivalent of 'svn lock', there can be a friendly message
explaining that a developer is creating a release, and that the commit
can be pushed later (e.g. the following day). It is anyway temporary. I
wouldn't use the word "ban", I prefer the word "temporary lock", it is
less negative. Docs and translations commits are more than welcome, you
do a great job! It is just that the push conflicts can be a little

But if each maintainer sends a mail to announce the distcheck to the
translation and doc teams, you'll receive hundreds mails, it doesn't
scale. Another mail should also be sent when the distcheck is finished.
Sending such mails is not convenient for the maintainer, and it assumes
that those mails are read as soon as they are sent.
