I, and I believe other DDs living in China, would welcome such
initiative as a Chinese portal for Debian.

However, I stand as well on the side of our Debian Project Leader Zack
here: the domain name ownership should be transferred to a Debian
organization. It is my understanding that it could be owned by SPI
(Software for Public Interest, the legal entity behind Debian). Do you
think you can arrange this?

Once this is done, I'd be very happy to help building such site. And if
you need, my company can even host the website for free on an easily
reachable server from China (for example in Singapore), which would
avoid the requirement for an ICP license which would be a pain to get.
