well, requiring an admin to update the translations seems like a
technical problem to me. Few people in gnome have admin rights.
we should be able to have a system where the gnome translation team
can do his work as their used to do it and that the site is
automatically updated without requiring administrators intervention.
Ideally, users could translate this and then members of the
translation team could validate this (like facebook did). Of course,
talking here does not solve the problem, so I will try to investigate

Chris, I completely agree that Wordpress is not the way forward.
However, I do understand people that want to get a new site ready in
no time and wordpress gives you that.
A little off-topic. I entered the endeavour of making an
addons.gnome.org, starting from the code of addons.mozilla.org. This
code (codename Zamboni) is a django python project. So I will try to
integrate solutions in this way (meaning try to find/develop/integrate
solutions into a django application). Again, code speaks better than
words, so I hope I can show a basic demo soon.
