Here we are discussing the case converting the phrases used by zh_CN
to zh_TW. Some terms below is convention in Taiwan.

It's interchangeable. 文件 usually means documents. I think it's
appropriate since the original word is document. The use of 文檔 is rare

We use 範例 in Taiwan.

No, 套件 means packages, deb package is a package so 套件 is appropriate here.

We do not distinguish between reload and update very much. 更新 usually
can express both. But if you really want to reload something you can
use 重新整理 or 重整. Since in the maint-guide the first appearance of 刷新 is
translated from "quilt refresh", I think 更新 is more appropriate here.

Not meant to delete that term. Just not sure how to convert this term,
or not convert at all. We use 開放原始碼, but also use 開源 which largely
influenced by mainland usage.

We often use 專案 to express this term. But I think 項目 is understandable
so to avoid change other appearances of 項目 which didn't mean "Project"
by accident, I left this for later judgement.

參看 is rare here.

Besides the opencc failure, we usually use 線上 instead of 在線

But unpack is usually expressed as uncompressing. It's not
distinguishable from some GUI archive management program. In original
version the 解包 comes from uncompressing the upstream tarball, which is
indeed a compressed file.

We use 圖示 instead of 圖標

Not sure if 遞歸 is used in mainland or not.

From the command line perspective, folder is equal to directories. So
we call both 目錄 here.

Routines maybe function calls or macros or internal structures. So I
think 程序 or 函式 is suitable here.
