I did get Danai's first mail on debian-chinese-gb, and it also reached
debian-chinese-big5 (delayed by moderation).  So it seems true that the
first mail got filtered on debian-mentors, not sure the reason though

I used to use dh_link to make a symlink from /u/s/d/$p1 to /u/s/d/$p2 at
build time.  I must have learned it from some other packages, though I
don't remember which.  Not sure if it can handle the case of missing
/u/s/d/$p1 though, the result should be a dangling symlink, I suppose.
