#2845: Obsoleted strings are treated as approved in Credits API

 Priority:  normal                    |  Milestone:
Component:  Translate Site & Plugins  |   Keywords:
 On the Credits page for 4.8 we have two contributors who don't appear to
 have any approved strings at any point (see the screenshots).

 If I understand the process correctly:
 * Contributor provides a suggestion.
 * GTE neither approves nor rejects the suggestion, and makes their own
 translation instead.
 * The original suggestion now has an `old` status, which is treated as
 "Approved, but obsoleted by another translation".

 Strings that weren't explicitly approved shouldn't be counted in credits.

 That said, the "Approved by:" line is only displayed for current strings,
 not for old, so there's no way in the UI to check whether those strings
 were ever approved. If they were, this ticket is invalid, but GlotPress
 should provide a way to check that via the UI.
