I'll act as the delegate admin - I can have several accounts made and everyone 
interested could access the reports.

I'd like to keep the number of people that can fiddle with it to a minimum 
tho, we should work by having a few people track it and report to our own 
bugtracker instead of everyone massively diving onto a very limited Klocwork 
system. It only does so much :)

that's fine if you're a major contributor but not for every .po maintainer :)

I had them build so it's beta-2. rebuilding from the beta releases is 
apparently easiest for them :)
