Re: Prioritize translation types by tags


Two features I miss a lot:

Reserve a package for translation: If i download a po-file to work on
the translation off-line, there should be an option to lock the package
for translation while i am doing this, so that no one else is waisting
there effort translating it on rosetta. Or at least a message saying so.

Comment on suggestions: When reviewing translations, it is frustrating
to review and correct translations, and then the next day see the same
user make the same mistakes in his suggestions. If it was possible to
give a comment to what was wrong with a suggestion and they might become
better translators, maybe even reviewers at some point.
