Rainer - I'm a little confused by the process you describe, but I
think I understand the gist of it. I really like the idea of having
the original bug submitter being listed as the bug reporter on FDO, as
they are the person in the best position to determine if the bug they
reported has been fixed. That being said, if the original submitter
doesn't speak or read a word of English, we may need to correspond via
a NL translator again when the bug is fixed  :-)

Another benefit of having the BSA stub-in a bug immediately is that it
lets us know that we're waiting on a translation from a particular
list. The open bug makes it a lot harder for us to "lose" bug reports
in the mail, as we can go through every week or so and ping the NL
lists about any outstanding, untranslated bug reports.

Rob -- are you the point person for implementing the localized BSAs?

I'd really like to see some docs up on the wiki, linked from the BSA
and QA pages, perhaps something like
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Localized_BSAs. There are a number
of questions in my mind about how the whole process will work, who
will be responsible for making sure that bugs are translated promptly
and correctly, how additional correspondence will be handled, etc. A
specification or workflow description could help to answer those
