So you are lucky, I don't sign and send this disclaimer, so propably 
i'll have to wait more than month to be registered. I think that the 
most of Mailman translators are in the same situation.

TP is great, but especially for projects that don't have own i18n teams. 
They get chance to be translated into many languages. Mailman already 
has been translated, so i'm wondering if joining TP will make more mess 
that this is worth.

On other hand, Mailman translators can make TP stronger. Stronger 
language teams can translate more GNU software, and that sounds nice.

Conclusion: I think, that merging Mailman translations with TP is better 
for TP than for Mailman.
Personally, Mailman is closer for me, so I'm neutral :)
