APT (as most others I guess) heavily relies on 'external' contributions
for the translations, so don't worry too much, its the usual way. ;)

That said, I have cc'ed the previous listed maintainer for the zn_CN
translation (Aron) and the recorded as well as the debian l10n teams
for input as I would prefer an acknowledgement from them.
(The last update seems to be from 2010, so we might not get a response,
as I haven't in my last tries, but on last time… mails do not hurt).

I see that this git tree contains quiet a few po files, so you might
want to work with the debian-l10n-chinese@lists.debian.org list in any
case. The list seems unfortunately not very active, but it is probably
the best point to reach fellow translators who can help you in your
endeavour. I e.g. see an aptitude request there, which could be an
opportunity to exchange translations for review. It can't hurt to have a
similar wording for apt/aptitude, can it? :)

You can find the latest po files e.g. here:
(the git tree has a github mirror as well, if you prefer)

Feel free to open a bugreport and attach the po file then you are done,
we will try to include it in the next upload then.

Thanks & best regards
