Sure, we'll need proper procedures. For example, we could have a label
Patch::translation to keep these MRs out of the countdown. However, I'm
not sure how much "review" is appropriate since the translator is
usually the one who can judge best (especially if already part of the
team = push access). Regarding branch names, are there multiple
translators working on the same language? How do they synchronize at
the moment?

Done, translation on Savannah now equals the branch on GitLab. I have a
copy of the Hungarian translation locally, should that be needed.
