+1 for community involvement

I'm not sure users are aware of all the needed things to have a
template and one that could be localized too, so the best way would
that the design team does a pre selection and let the users vote only
the templates that complies.

Speaking more generally than just this contest, having the Design Team
give feedback or help to improve templates would be a great idea!

it's currently under their control and yes, it's really great :)

... We all come from different origins so we will all face the same issues and these can be 
adapted by users or by native lang projects to match their own standard. Let us not create 
difficulties. Let this be a joyful moment for community participation!

Making it easier for community members to adapt templates (and
extensions) to their own native lang sounds like a positive
contribution. What's the current workflow for localization?

Currently template are on the Templates site. There is no workflow about
their internationalisation. But after this contest, to populate the file
in LibreOffice we will need to set one, this was discussed on other lists.

the work or enhance what already exists.

Perhaps we can do more to make sure that work gets re-integrated back
into the original version, or is made available as a derivative.
Keeping a copy of each template in version control could reduce the
barriers to participation. It would make it easier for contributors to
fix typos, track down bugs, or make even bigger changes.

What we need is a kind of "official" set that we can work in all
languages with en_US as the basis to make sure that changes go in l10n
as well. But I think that this is what Kendy has in mind.
