That is a *lot* of work.

I'm afraid Ralph is not around at the moment.  You'd have to wait for
him to come back, or ask other CentOS devs.

In the meantime (while waiting), it will be nice if we can find
another pair of eyes that can read Chinese.  When it comes to
translation, 4 (or more) eyes are always better than a single pair...
