Thank you for your message.  We'll try and get it up-to-date ASAP.
You did point out some problems though:  There hasn't been a well-organized,
on-going effort for translating traditional Chinese messages like
that of the simplified Chinese team at  http://i18n.linux.net.cn/
(and I am glad that Wang Jian and others have led that effort very well.)

And I guess there are not many active developers in the TLUG, and the HKLUG
community is very small; active Linux developers are even less. And I would
have missed your message too if I weren't subscribed to the list (because I
do some KDE packaging for Thiz Linux.  :-) But yes, you're right that this
does need to be addressed.  There have been efforts to coordinate
Linux projects in Taiwan and in Hong Kong, but it'll take some time.

Kenduest might have been too busy?  I don't know.  He has been
instrumental in coordinating the zh_TW translation for KDE-2.2.2

BTW, what is the minimal criteria in getting zh_TW back?  Would it be enough
if we could get kdelibs.po and desktop.po 90% translated, and kdesktop 75%
translated?  I have just downloaded kde-i18n-zh_{CN,TW}.tar.bz2 and I'll see
how much I can borrow from the CN team.  :-)
