What is an issue is you not being able to contribute.
Indeed, not to have a coordinator is an issue for new contributors.
Like in this case: if we have a person that would like to contribute,
usually he doesn't know where to start, and even if other contributors
are able to point him to useful documents to read and they are able to
drive him in the first steps, the newcomer doesn't have the rights to
simply modify the wiki pages, and no one is able to help him (at least
he should contact the international group).
I mean, if the work of a coordinator should be to have an overview of
what it is important to translate, priorities, status of the project,
you are right that not to have a coordinator is not a big issue: all in
all every translator will translate what he want or what he is more
interested in. It is better to have a coordinator, but translations can
going on even if he is unavailable for some time.
But in the eyes of a newcomer, the first impression in not to have a
responsive coordinator or at least someone that is able to give him the
rights to use the tools (wiki, zanata, etc.), it isn't a nice
impression. Waiting three weeks in order to be able to edit the wiki,
it seems a bit unpleasant, IMO.
So, if this new contributor (FAS: emape), instead of run away from the
project (that IMO it could be a normal reaction to such situation), he
volunteer himself to become a new coordinator of the Italian
translation team, I think that we should welcome him!
