Restricting access to the translations repository is against the letter of our
manifesto which states
"All source materials are hosted on infrastructure available to and writable
by all KDE contributor accounts"
AFAIK, "all source materials" includes translations.
There are a few reasonable exceptions for this requirement, e.g. for the
sources of our websites, but I don't see a good reason for restricting access
to the translations.
I think restricting access to the translations will create a precedent for
restricting access to other source materials and undermines the values stated
in our manifesto. Therefore, I don't think we should go down this route.
