Yes, the Docs no longer appear in the system -- Fedora
Project is working on a new system for providing PO through a WUI.

Through CVS there's no such function.  However, we have yet to encounter
conflicts for this reason in CVS, maybe because not too many people are
doing docs translations.  But if you commit your changes often, the
chances of this happening are minimized or eliminated.

Yes, we will notify fedora-trans-list when the POT is ready -- should be
later today.

OTHERS already contains "zh_CN" so you should be ready to go.  Just wait
for the "POT ready" email coming soon.
