The Continuous Localization documentation documents the workflow and possibilities pretty well: https://docs.weblate.org/en/latest/admin/continuous.html

Weblate approved hosting OpenWrt and it is surprisingly addictive. The 
project is found here[0] and the automatic PR creation works[1] also. 
Thanks for pointing to that project! Happy translating I guess...
