I wonder what will change if we move to SIG.
That's a big question which hits me. We need to clarify what are the
scope of the i18n team (or SIG).

In my understanding, the roles the i18n team usually care are:
(1) to coordinate and help individual translation teams
    including handling translation failures detected during translation imports
(2) to maintain the translation platform and scripts which import
translation scripts
(3) to encourage translations support in individual projects (mainly
in horizon and horizon plugins)

What are things the SIG cares and who are responsible for what?
(1) and (2) still need to be covered.

Regarding (3), it is already cared by individual project teams like
horizon and their bug tracking system.
the i18n team is not involved so it can be out of scope of the SIG.
