That sounds great, I was looking for a volunteer and Diego Iastrubani
(sp?) said he might do it.

is all you should need, it will create a -guest account for anyone who
is not a DD.
There is no real reason for her to have an account on Alioth, I
understand that Lior Kaplan has commit permissions and patches can be
sent to him for review and commits. If he is not available I can do the
reviews and forward it for commits.
The d-i team is not giving commit rights freely so I'm thinking that at
least initially she should forward patches to Lior/me for review.
Wherever I say patches it should also be ok to have a complete he.po
file. My purpose is to get someone to do the translations and I/Lior can
do the technical work of committing and interfacing with the d-i team.
I assume you can also do the job of reviewing/interfacing but I also
assume that your time is even more limited than mine.
