I applied several days ago to become a member of the Portuguese translation team at Transifex but so far nobody accepted my request. This is very discouraging.
In fact, why does it have to be such a gated process anyway? As a contributor, I just want to instantly start submitting translations, not wait for some higher power to somehow(?) deem me worthy and grant me the privilege(!) of offering my time and effort to a community project.
Is there a way to configure the Discourse Transifex project to automatically accept team memberships? QA can be effected at the review stage, as it should be. For instance, currently the Portuguese team only has coordinators – no reviewers, and no translators(!!). Access to the translator status should be approval-free, IMO.
Barring that, could someone with the proper permissions at least approve my application? I don’t know who to notify, but I’ll try @camilohollanda.
