The github solution works fairly well, I think. The biggest issue is
guessing at how it will appear on the website. for example, I'd love to
re-organize the FAQs... maybe by OS, maybe by something else, but I'm not
sure how/if nested collapsing menus would work for this, or they'd have to
be set up under different headers. There's no real way for me to test this.
However, I know firsthand that adding multiple people to WordPress is a
pain in the ass to manage. Plus, how do you vet a new contributor for the
first few times, and at what point are they given edit access?
I wonder if its possible to have a sandbox installation somewhere with the
current theme to play with, and a public (to contributors, anyways)
author/editor account? I might even have space to host it if need be.
On the translation side, I'm only proficient enough to do Spanish, and
Salva has that covered very well, so I don't really have anything to add
Oh, also, I'm fezzington.

couple others (I don't ask for SOBs for the website, so I only know your
github names, fezzington and h2sk1) for providing improvements

The website has far fewer languages than the app itself; we have most
content in Spanish (a HUGE thank you to Salvador), some in German (mein
Tauch-Deutsch ist schrecklich), French, Spanish, Portuguese, Finnish,
Polish and Russian. But so far the announcement has only been translated
into Spanish, and I don't think I've seen any other pull requests to fix
the rest of the translations (many of the pages have greatly diverged from
the English master pages, according to Google Translate).
So I wonder if people just don't have time (trust me, that I understand),
aren't interested (also understandable), if this still is too hard with
all the HTML and special code for the theme and the shortcodes that allow
me to link to the various files and versions. If it's the latter, I'd love
to hear ideas how to fix this to make it easier. My assumption had been
that this git repo would be much easier than giving people access to the
So basically I'm trying to figure out how to get more translations and
updates to the existing translations - ideally without over-burdening a
small group of people who already do most of the work.
