    Hmm...  I see the problem with side bar translation.  And I'm very
sorry that I was in my research paper and did not notice the previous
discussion.  However, there are several issues of concern:

 1. I am going to give a talk in our largest local open source
conference (COSCUP 2013, on 8/3, and plan to
announce OpenOffice 4.0.  It is the first talk after the key notes.  It
would be very embarrassing to announce it without a local version released.

 2. There would be a large-scale deployment around August or September
(6000-7000) in a government department, and they are planning to join
our development force in order to fix some Chinese problems in
governmental use.  If OpenOffice 4.0 Traditional Chinese version is not
available at that time, we could only give them 3.4.1, which their
development could not be based on.

    I've asked our local community to help the translation in urgent.
If we can finish the Traditional Chinese sidebar translation with
certain amount, could it be OK to release it?
