should we build our own dashboard that combines the transifex #’s of code localization with some content localization metrics + tracking?  It’d be a shame for the product translation to not result in the adoption that it deserves because people didn’t know how to deal w/ the content.

Create a really simple teaching kit for example that shows how to do this, and start engaging our transifex, Mozilla channels, etc, and perhaps even some incentives?  ie get your locale to 100% and everyone gets a hoodie, go from 0-hero and we’ll fly you somewhere, a message from mark, etc?
