There used to be a script running to repost any mail sent to debian-chinese-gb
or debian-chinese-big5 between each other many many years ago. Meanwhile, the
email encoding is converted according to the maillist (GB2312/GBK for debian-
chinese-gb, and BIG5 for debian-chinese-big5).

I believe the converting is no longer necessary now. Since UTF-8 has become
the de facto email encoding, we don't really need GB- and BIG5 encoding
anymore.

However, I'm not sure if cross posting is still needed.
