It depends on the single teams who they give write access to. The German
translation team reduced its team member numbers, who have got write
access, from 170 to around 10. There have been problems in the
beginning, but all teams are working on solutions.

It's the job of the coordinator of the corresponding Rosetta team to get
into contact with upstream or to point the translators to upstream.

This is right - currently. But a better review and upstream
collaboration infrastructure is in work.
