He did ask sysadmins to get developer access, and we suggested he gets a mentor here first. We always prefer to have someone who is already part of the community "approve" the developer account request.
In addition, translations would need to be imported into our infrastructure, or recovered from our SVN history. That needs intervention by our i18n experts, possibly before the code is imported.
