Comment (by jimtrue):

 +1 this should not be a #wontfix . Hiding the translations under a 'show
 more' heading isn't exactly being "accessible" at all. If I'm not logged
 into that locale, but I do speak multiple languages, I don't see anywhere
 except under that heading what languages the plugin has been translated
 into. I was under the impression we were supposed to be putting
 Accessibility front and center these days.

 Speaking as someone who has been approached by multiple other language
 translators lately coming to translate our plugin, navigating
 translate.wordpress.org is complicated enough, especially getting people
 to the necessary project page, translation team, etc, that having a
 simpler 'onboarding' process from plugin > a state of translation > 'join
 the team and help get this plugin translated' would be very helpful.

 Adding this as a sidebar item is just as critical as Support, Reviews,
 etc. @lukecavanagh suggestion above is incredibly precise and clear.
