We had been using a separate SVN server until now and I was responsible 
for merging and updating the documents in the OSGeo SVN in order to 
ensure the quality of the documents uploaded. So there is actually no 
reason to worry about that. We just moved to git, because part of my job 
is much easier with "Pull Requests".
Actually non-translator members of our Chapter find it much easier to 
jump in and fix minor issues (like typos, spelling etc) than before.

I would definitely suggest moving the whole project to Git eventually, 
but this would require OSGeo infrastructure for Git and Trac to be in 
place. I recall Alex saying that there is a plan for such deployments.
