We would be *very* interested. We have a few Ambassadors in China, as
I'm sure you're aware. We have a fairly strong translation community
in China, but we should strive to do more than just provide
translations of existing content. It would be very helpful to have
someone who can bridge the considerable language gap.

For a start, Gerard, maybe you can identify some of the primary gaps
we have. What questions to Chinese Fedora users and potential
contributors have? In what areas can we improve information we offer
to Chinese speaking people?

Another question in which I'm keenly interested is, where do Chinese
users get Fedora? If they're using mirrors in China, are there enough
of them? Can we find more administrators willing to distribute Fedora
on mirrors?
