Comment (by Nao):

 > Would both the PTE/GTE and the translation contributor be
 "automagically" subscribed to updates on the rejection + feedback topic?
 If so, it seems like we'll need add a note on the translation submission
 screen, so people know they'll get an email if their translation is

 It makes sense that everyone is subscribed to the updates. We will need
 some sort of note to tell them they'll receive email (also, can users
 control notification setting from
 https://profiles.wordpress.org/me/profile/notifications/ for this?).

 > I'm assuming all the feedback will be publicly visible, right? I think
 this will be important, because then new contributors will be able to
 learn from other people's feedback.

 +1 to publicly visible feedback.

 > When I think about what these forums will look like, though, I get a
 little sad... because they'll basically be repositories of rejection and
 criticism. While we're making feedback possible, could we also allow for
 an "Approve with feedback" option, so that PTE/GTEs could also share
 praise and appreciation for good translations?

 This is very true. I try to use a positive & helpful tone for my feedback,
 but this becomes more important when the intraction becomes more visible
 to everyone. I'd love it if there is a feature that will make sure G/PTEs
 follows such practice.
