Still, some translators translate log messages first, since they are
nice and short ;(

We can give translators more guidance on what to translate - or we can
go one step further and disable some translations completely. Right now
if a project wants translation sync and sends a patch for
project-config, it goes in. But does it make sense with current team to
translate over 80 projects? Or should we instead tell projects: This is
what we focus on, therefore let's only put these documents in Zanata -
and nothing else?

Especially creating stable branches needs extra work and we should
really only do those for projects that the translators can handle,
