designated proofreaders, excluding locales

Is it possible designate proofreaders for a particular project, such that specific users must accept translations before they get pushed to github? I can't seem to find functionality like this, and I imagine it might be antithetical to translatewiki's principles, but I figured I'd ask.

Also, is it possible to exclude particular locales for a project? Let's say my project wanted translations for any given locale *except* es-MX.

    It's possible to add, map or blacklist locales for specific projects. We don't generally add country-specific locales like es-MX or it-IT.

    Translate provides quality assurance features including a translation review. It was initially restricted to a select group of editors but in the end there was no use for the distinction and now all translators are automatically allowed to review each other's translations. Usually, any disagreement is quickly resolved simply by explaining your reasons: on a wiki it's easy to determine who did what and to contact them.

    So our suggestion is to give it a try and avoid overthinking things beforehand. Solutions can be found if any real problem arises, but for now an approval system is a solution in search of a problem.
