... And just to mention that I managed to make it work during the Hackathon and actually did some edits—some of them crappy, but good enough for a proof of concept ;) The demo was well-received.

I want to continue hacking on it. The next step would be to actually make it stable, working and able to authenticate with real usernames, and start rolling it out to adventurous translators.

Thanks to everybody who helped.

This task has been assigned to the same task owner for more than two years. Resetting task assignee due to inactivity, to decrease task cookie-licking and to get a slightly more realistic overview of plans. Please feel free to assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically work or plan to work on this task - it would be welcome!
