Slimstat and localizations

Greetings, folks. Our plugin, WP Slimstat, has just bee added to glotpress. Even though we already ship localization files with our plugin, we are sort of new to the world of GlotPress and online/web translations. A few questions:

  • how do I become a validator for languages that I know?
  • how does the approval process work for those strings submitted through the website translate.wordpress.org?
  • should we stop updating .po files when our users send us updates via email?
  • what if people submit strings via the website? how do we update the .po files shipped with the plugin to keep them up-to-date?

Thank you in advance!
