[OpenStack-I18n] The future of language coordinator

this week I had a conversation with Ian about the future of language 
coordinators and how to improve the communication within the team. I 
checked the Zanata user management and did some changes for different 
language teams.

1. In some teams Daisy was configured as a language coordintaor. Maybe 
as you know: She invented the I18n team and did an incredible job. But 
her priorities have changed and as we say in our country: life goes on. 
So I removed the account from such kind of language teams.

2. If there are no team members left, the language teams are empty. This 
avoids uncertainties when new people contact the language coordinator 
and then receive no response.

3. If there are one team member in such kind of team: Congrats! Now you 
are the new language coordindator! Please read in the I18n guide on [1] 
what roles in language team mean and how to deal as a language 

4. Other language teams are untouched. But we have still accounts from 
inactive members configured and (this is the real issue) inactive 
language coordinators with active team members. Under the help of 
Stackalytics [2] I will try to investigate the situation in the 
different language teams. Any help or ideas are still welcome.

kind regards
