I believe the list is becoming a good share already.

I would like to add

* Good review interfaces and tracking status of comments.
  * We need a discussion for better translation. The string seems wrong, I
am sure what it means,.....
  * When the translation is updated, we need to confirm it is reasonably
  * We need to track what are addressed and what are not.
* Bug/Issue tracking
  * Discussion or Bug which is not specific to each translation should be
handled in broader scope.
    E.g., translation memory related, upstream bugs, ..... (I am not sure
these are good examples..)
