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 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
