Fine. One thing to clarify -- Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese are
the same language as well. We (the colleagues from China Mainland, HongKong,
Taiwan, and somewhere else in the world) are going to work together to
handle Chinese translation.

Thanks, William

You probably already knew that there are actually two set of Chinese
encodings, i.e. Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese. "zh-cn"
is used for Simplified Chinese only.

I would like to leave www-zh-tw available in case a separate project
is created (there might be many reasons for that in the future).  Of
course, you can handle zh-tw translations from the www-zh-cn project
just like the www-nb team does www-nn (Norwegian Nynorsk).  There is
no problem to keep your current practices.

Typically, if we judge from large free software translation projects,
only Serbian and Serbian Latin are done by the same group, because in
practice it is the same language and there are automatic conversion
scripts Cyrillic -> Latin.

So I think it is a good idea to keep the namespace that way.
