First of all thanks for your interest in contributing to Mozilla, and 
for taking the time to answer those questions :)

I think we should use 'cv' since the ISO-639-1 is available for this 
language, and historically we've been using it whenever available.

Should we wait for Common Voice to become available, or should be enable 
Firefox right away? There's an open bug for Common Voice, hopefully 
we're not too far from enabling it in Pontoon. Both work for me.

Once the locale is enabled on Pontoon, I'll set you as a locale manager 
for Chuvash.

We recently switched all Turkic locales (az, tr, crh) to a rule with 2 
forms, like English, to cover exactly the case you described.

I think we should do that for this language as well, since the root is 
the same. Would that work for you?

> 4) I am intending to localise in collaboration with some professional translators and I am primarily interested in working on CommonVoice. I realise it isn't in Pontoon yet, but it will be soon and I want to hit the ground running.
That's great.
