Any news on this? Anyone still interested in Kazakh? Anyone still
interested in being a coordinator for Kazakh in GNOME?

It seems not much has changed, except for the Kazakh team info being
unlisted in the GNOME Translation Project, due to inactivity:

It is very unfortunate that, from Simos' investigations, it seems all
activity on Kazakh is being done in Rosetta only and hence only for
Ubuntu. Having the Kazakh translations also upstream (in GNOME itself)
would benefit everyone and reach a wider audience.
