Moreover, somebody should have the admin permissions for mediagoblin
in Pootle.

But the change should end up in GIT, anyway, and new languages are
seldom added, less often than e.g. the set of the translatable
strings is updated.

It's something unrelated, English language is not template; there is
a specific "language", "Template"; the filename would be
mediagoblin.pot. I still doubt that Pootle will understand where to look
for it.
