Description

As is, it's hard for translators to know if a project is actively maintained (is there a PTE assigned to the project for this language?).

As an example: https://translate.wordpress.org/locale/sv/default/wp-plugins/bbpress there is no way to tell if that project has a PTE assigned and who that might be. This can create some frustration when strings doesn't get validated.

I propose we show some sort of notice that everyone can see. Preferably this notice is shown on every language specific project page view (more like a sticky header note).

Example, there are no PTE for the language specific project:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/107481/bbpress_has_no_editor.jpg

Example, the are PTE(s) maintaining the language specific project:

Yes, really needed, but also the other way around: The plugin author should be able to see all PTE for his plugin in a list without having to open 158 locale.

Thinking about this some more, I'd rather see a list of PTE's on the "root" level stats page of the plugin:

If it was only on each locale page then the plugin author would need to browse through each of ~150 locales to see who was a PTE for their plugin, a summary at the base of the main plugin stats page would show the said list of PTE's in a single location.

This should be a part of #1388.

Yes, somewhat related. If it where to be included on language specific pages too.

I would say both are needed. My point here is to make this clear for specific languages too. Not just for the overview pages. New translators may find themselves landing directly on language specific translation pages without touching the overview pages.

This appears to be resolved in [2663], locale-specific project pages display PTEs now:

Let's create a new ticket for that if still relevant.
