You are welcome to use this list to discuss such issues, including posting
in the language in question, that is why this list exists.  A brief flurry
of language-specific discussion from time-to-time is a fairly normal
occurrence on this list, the other language localizers don't mind and may
even be able to help with their input on how they handled similar

Unfortunately Pootle does not have direct contact mechanisms (like the
blinded e-mail this user link on wiki user pages).  As a Pootle admin, I do
have the ability to look to e-mail addresses for Pootle usernames, but OLPC
privacy policy is that such information is not generally given out.

If it is an eToys specific question (the project you've been working on),
you might take it up on their forums as well.

The reality of the situation in a distributed system like Pootle is that
decisions get made by those who "show up", your desire not to undo another
user's work is commendable, but it is always possible to simply leave
suggestions in place if you are uncertain or to use the fuzzy flag for a
string that you think might require further review before commit.
