Thanks for your feedback.
I'm not expert in this, but I understand from the web that the codes
zh_CN, zh_TW, zh_HK are old codes and should be replaced by the new
ones. I found multiple sources, the most relevant ones are:
And the replacement rule is also in the CLDR:
Neither do I. I just followed the tradition.
I'm not sure why we should keep to the old notation in this context, can
you please share your concerns?
I assume this may impact for us, I'll see with:
* the Weblate team how to proceed for existing projects using zh_CN so
work is not lost
* the Fedora i18n team to see how this may impact Fedora as an operating
You are right, I am not sure whether our i18n team and upstream teams
are ready for this change.
If everything is ready, switch to the new code will not be a problem.

While this doesn't bother me to do so, this triggers a question we

What we do is to translate the written language, so I don't think they

I did not understand this, sorry
I am not sure it's my system's problem or others. Both of my browser
Chrome and firefox display the words 'Please choose' among other
languages when I click the list. The words 'Please choose' is between
'Pirate (Pr)' and 'Polish (Pl)'.
I hope you can understand me this time. :)
Furthermore, the new wiki page for translation is created.
