[Mailman-i18n] Finnish localization

Hey all,

I've been in touch with Joni Töyrylä, the former champion of the Finnish 
localization of Mailman. He told me he's been inactive with the project 
for a while now, and if someone would like to take his part, he'd be 
more than happy. So here I am, willing to take charge of the Finnish 
localization of Mailman.

My localization history: I did a few hundred lines in Launchpad for 
Ubuntu a couple of years ago, and still am a member of the Ubuntu 
Finnish Translators team. I've had some silent time from Ubuntu since I 
haven't got a desktop version of it installed at the moment, only a 
server version. Also I've translated a couple of little programs 
(Asunder and ISOMaster) a few years ago, and am still maintaining those 

I took contact with Joni because I found a few mistakes in the Finnish 
localization. Since Joni asked me to take over, I took a better look at 
the files, and noticed so many flaws that I decided to start from 
scratch. My time is limited because of my family (wife, two kids and a 
dog) and job, so don't expect anything soon, I'm at the moment up to 5% 
on the .po and almost on the half on the templates.

I have only one question at this point: To whom do I send the files when 
I'm done?
