Bug Description

Members of ubuntu-translators group should be able to batch export templates, like those in ubuntu-docs.

(10.26.11) kelemengabor: Hi all, does anyone know, how could I export all the Hungarian templates of ubuntu-docs?
(10.26.38) kelemengabor: https://translations.launchpad.net/ubuntu/karmic/+source/ubuntu-docs - from this page, is this possible?

(10.46.29) danilos: kelemengabor: unfortunately not, because we had people randomly using "export all translations" on many different source packages and saturating our export queue with requests; it's now limited only to Ubuntu packagers, but I can request a full export for you if you want me to
(10.51.00) kelemengabor: danilos: thanks for the explanation. The problem is that I'd need to do this not only once... we have http://sugo.ubuntu.hu/ (clone of help.u.c) and I'd like to update it's content at least once a month, preferably without human interaction
(10.52.29) danilos: kelemengabor: unfortunately, that'd not be possible until we figure out a solution; perhaps we should allow members of the ubuntu translation group the same

Members of ~ubuntu-dev should also be granted access to this. I need the access to download translations for ubuntu-docs and gnome-user-docs, and currently can't do this, despite being maintainer of those packages and member of ~ubuntu-dev. Let me know if a separate bug is required.

A better way to do this (without introducing a new celebrity) is to just extend Distribution.uploaders to take into account all ArchivePermissions, not just those for a component. There is only one other user of that property (approving bug nominations without a package), and there is no problem with relaxing that similarly.

Another way to address this would be to permit a reasonable quota on exports and allow anyone to do it again.

However, its not currently in our roadmap. If someone wants to work on it, we'll be happy to mentor them.
