I'm currently in charge of the website translation, until someone
wants to take the job (and I'm actually waiting for someone to take
the job :-))
Let me explain how the translation is done:
1. For all web pages except those under www.debian.org/chinese,
everything is translated to Traditional Chinese (Big5). All the
files named *.wml.gb in the CVS are _NOT_ being used at this
The GB pages you see in the web site are converted from Big5 to GB
during the compilation stage.
I know this is very inconvenient to our Mainland friends, but I'm
not wise enough to solve this problem. Suggestions to solve it are
2. For the pages under www.debian.org/chinese (that is, the Debian
Chinese Project pages), you can put the English version in
webwml/english/chinese in the CVS. So you need to make that
I think dropping an email to debian-www mailing list to say what we
are doing is good too, just to let other people know.
