It's really a place for distributing binaries. It
currently hosts Rockbox v2.1 Traditional Chinese, and
a Simplified build based on (I think) post v2.1 CVS
source. Rockbox v2.2 binaries should get posted soon.

The Traditional Chinese patch has been uploaded to
Sourceforge. Though the larger, more legible fonts
gzip to over 256k so can't be uploaded - any ideas?

The key technical changes are already in place.

Further work that springs to mind are:

* Provide translations - any volunteers???
* Merge Traditional and Simplified into single source
(minimise #ifdefs)
* Compress Unicode translation table which helps avoid
the 200K firmware limit. (use run length deltas and
Huffman).
* Check file viewer word break algorithm.
* Speed up initial loading when English menus are
used.

Why not discuss it here? Moving a discussion off into
a separate closed
forum makes it harder to find for other interested
people.
