* Be able to edit a description per project that can be inserted
automatically in the message.

* Have a page like the goodies-maintainers page perhaps, that kind of
page is something humans don't have to maintain.

goodies, many applications have translations update in vcs but lack a
release for a long time. Is it concivable to have a special user that
is allowed to make releases for these projects?
