Thanks for the explanation. I was unsure. In the meantime I've done some 
homework. Well, the difference may be not as much as between Japanese and 
Korean ;-), but anyway sufficient for a separate translation.

hmm, adjusting my statement: the correct language tag would be zh-cn, 
(traditional would be zh-tw or zh-hk - are there actual differences between 
taiwan traditional and honkong traditional?)

Oh. They _are_ useful. The docs are not static. Noting the original CVS 
revision number at translation time will help you to track the changes and 
keep the translation in sync.

yep, I think it's clear now. I've done a first CVS checkout from your site. 
If nobody beats me before and there are no objections, I'll try to 
integrate it into our CVS next time (read: 1-2 weeks).

Thanks anyway for the contribution!
