Right now I can't say for sure. The batch job I run every night started
around 0700Z and at that time, there were still plenty of errors. However,
I see rudi posted a zh-CN to docs.fp.o around an hour later. Whether he
manually corrected the files before building that or they were good when he
downloaded them I can't say, and it is now his nighttime, so I'll have to
check with him in his morning.
The zh-CN version at http://fedora.is-sixsigma.com/F12beta/ I corrected to
see whether there were other types of errors. Because I don't totally
understand the interaction with Transifex, I'm not comfortable pushing my
edits back to git.
I did notice in the version at docs.fp.o that there were some entire
sections in English in spite of Transifex saying 100%. I notice that some
other languages have those same sections untranslated. My first reaction
was to blame that on Publican producing a bad pot, but then I found some
other languages where those same sections are translated, which leads me to
suspect that perhaps those po's were checked out when the new branch was
made. I need to scratch my head a little to sort out how we can deal with
