I can do this quite easily however, as Pofeng mentions in his email, there
may be political consequences of using Taiwanese resources/mailing list
to develop ZH support for GNU/Linux.  I seem to have missed much of the
discussion regarding this change, so could someone just send me a quick
email outlining why we're making this change?  Thanks.

Hmm.  I'm not sure what the best solution is.  It's difficult trying
to synchronise two mailing lists to each other.  The best option is
to use one mailing list for all traffic - whether that mailing list
live in the USA (zh於li.org) or Taiwan (zh-l10n於li.org.tw).  Then there
are no synchronisation problems or mail loops.  And subscribers of the
list receive all messages.

Of course, you may also wish to have the two mailing lists separate from
each other.  Or a third option might be to subscribe one list to the other
so that email sent to the first list would be automatically forwarded to
the second list.
