Right, I noticed this too.

Can you please check http://ddtp.debian.net/debian/dists/sid/main/i18n/
and merge zh transaltion manually with either zh_CN or zh_TW (via mail
interface), we cannot do this without knowledge of the language and
don't wont to drop all 22 translations.

But are you really sure that it is not possible to convert a common
Chinese translation into zh_CN AND zh_TW? Please note that this is done
by the Debian website, there is only a single translation but multiple
output encodings!?

Could someone please explain this? Why waste time for two
encodings/scripts if one is sufficient?
