No, no, thank you for working quickly. :-)

I agree. I have had the same experience... Many users and
programmers does not get interested in translation itself.
But translators usually have their own community; they usually reviews
each other's translation. So, I think you can find one some time. :-)

Great!! Thank you very much for posting a po file, Yubao.

Rock, I'd like you to review the po file. You seem to be used to
translation works, at least for Subversion. I believe you can help
Liu Yubao very well.

Yubao and Rock, I'd like you to contact to each other (maybe in the
Simplified Chinese) to brush up the translation. After that work,
please repost the po file here. It may take some days to brush up,
but the release time for 1.4.0 is at least one week later; you can
make new zh_CN.po in time.

Erik or David, could you please create commit access to the repository
for them?

consistent, you should do so. But it can be done after releasing the

One more suggestion. If you cannot understand the message itself, you
can type 's' to refer to the source code. It sometimes helps me.
