I suppose, Leader role inherits Reviewer, etc. Despite I see lot of locales (including Czech) having all Leaders as Reviewers, and all Reviewers as Editors. In bigger number of contributors, the listing can be a little messy.

So I suggest to find different way of displaying and managing team roles, where each user will be shown in one team. Also I think it would be better to set a users role from select, instead of deleting, so no one would cut self or anyone off accidentally, e.g. by removing from Reviewer group and not adding elsewhere.

Hi Michal,

I like the idea of having a user in only one l10n role. I changed the name of the issue to better reflect it, and I've added it to the backlog (https://docs.google.com/a/mozilla.com/spreadsheets/d/1BGULIZZxFv54EcVoBo1IGPzsjlOsuUB-0CnaU_oJjjQ/edit#gid=0)

Can you explain a bit more about the "select" part? You mean all the users who contribute to Czech (for example) should be displayed in a dropdown menu when adding new members - or some other way? Depending on your idea, it may be easier or harded to implement.

Maybe you can use XRG (https://goggles.mozilla.org/) to hack together a mock up of this?

Summary: Better l10n team roles administration → Each contributor should only be displayed in one role in the team dashboard for SUMO l10n
I mean something like a grid of two columns (user, role), where:
1) I can add a user similar way as now, with default (lowest) role.
2) Change a role for added user using a drop-down menu (<select>), or remove it from the team.

That's IMO something very conservative. But having some more innovative approach is not a bad idea, I can definitely try to mock up something. Maybe like Pontoon has, which can be seen in bug 1223945 if you do not have access to any locale management there.

That sounds like a cool (and potentially doable) idea. We could reuse the format of the community hub pages to list the users and have the roles in columns: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/community/top-contributors/l10n/new

At the moment, with our current developer shortage, this may have to wait a while.
