Hi, I notice you have inserted your name and homepage in
subversion/po/zh_CN.po, line 4379:

  msgstr ""
  "版权所有 (C) 2000-2004 CollabNet.\n"
  "Subversion 是开放源代码软件,请看 http://subversion.tigris.org/\n"
  "此产品包含的软件由 CollabNet (http://www.Collab.Net/)开发,\n"
  "简体中文信息由YingNing Huang (h y n @ h y n n e t.c o m)(http://www.hynnet."

This breaks with the policy described in HACKING:

   * We have a tradition of not marking files with the names of
      individual authors (i.e., we don't put lines like "Author: foo"
      or "@author foo" in a special position at the top of a source
      file). This is to discourage territoriality -- even when a file
      has only one author, we want to make sure others feel free to
      make changes. People might be unnecessarily hesitant if someone
      appears to have staked a personal claim to the file.

and several places in TRANSLATING. Please make the Chinese msgstr read
the same as the English string. Credit is nice, but in the Subversion
project the Fame and Glory hides in "svn annotate" and COMMITTERS. :)
