Steps to reproduce:

I went to Pontoon and wanted to add support for Sakha (Yakut) so that we could translate Common Voice. Sakha (ISO: sah) is not currently in Pontoon, so this involved sending a message to a Google Group which was pretty complicated.


Actual results:

The message was stuck in moderation. :)


Expected results:

It would be cool to be able to request a new locale through a nice interface in Pontoon.

The UI shoud live on the /teams page and work similarly to how requesting a project works from a /$TEAM page.

We could pull all required data for all CLDR locales, so PMs will no longer need to manually enter data like script, directon or population.

There should also be an option to request a non-CLDR locale.
Pulling CLDR data should also fix bug 1396915.
