>> 01:56 < foka> 我最近有個想法：如果把 debian-chinese-big5 和

>> 01:57 < aguai> foka: 不懂？
>> 01:57 < paulliu> 唔...為啥要做這件事??..:P
>> 01:57 < paulliu> aguai, 那是兩個 mailing list
>> 01:58 < foka> paulliu, 是這樣的：現在都是 UTF-8 年代了，也不再存在以前
>> Big5、GB2312 郵件亂碼的問題了。
>> 01:58 < paulliu> 嗯, 的確...不過我是這麼想的...其實那個 big5 的意思應該是
>> 01:59 < paulliu> 雖然大家都是中國人...不過繁體跟簡體..還是會有一些閱讀上
>> 02:01 < paulliu> 不過, debian-chinese-big5 沒有甚麼 traffic 就是了..
>> 02:01 < paulliu> 當然這只是我的看法而已啦..
>> 02:01 < paulliu> 我是覺得, 繁體中文跟簡體中文, 有時是該分開的...
>> 02:02 < foka> 其實整體來說還好；我認識好多台灣來的朋友，很快熟識簡體字
>> 02:02 < paulliu> 是可以看的懂, 但是我自己的經驗是...偶爾要猜...
>> 02:03 < foka> paulliu, 呵呵，正好互相學習。 :-)
>> 02:03 < paulliu> 也許簡體中文猜中意思的機率是 9x%, 日文漢字 4x%......

>> However the point I concerned is our users support and free software
>> So I'd like to ask, what's you guys' opinion:
>> Does our community only limited in Taiwan or China?
>> Do you guys agree people from over the world can be also part of Debian
>> You guys prefer to do the user support together or separately, and why?
>> Please give your valuable opinion.
