Hello! We call ourselves the "FreeBSD Chinese Community", a team from China, and we have been working to get more people to use FreeBSD in China. Of course, we have encountered a lot of problems, such as: Chinese users always have trouble installing FreeBSD on their computers, because there is no official mirror site, and the closest one to mainland China is in Taiwan, and we have no way to connect to an official mirror site for policy reasons; there is no official documentation in Chinese for users to review, and the website for the official Chinese documentation translation project is There is no official Chinese documentation available to users, and the official Chinese documentation translation project website is inaccessible and unmanaged; there is no unified mainland China user group or foundation to help mainland FreeBSD users. We have contacted you and the University of Science and Technology of China LUG has offered to mirror FreeBSD and be one of the official mirror sites, but in the end, no one cared and it went away. Also, we would like to be an agent for FreeBSD in China and contribute to the FreeBSD open source community by providing mirror sites, Chinese documentation translations, etc. for Chinese FreeBSD users in China.
