Great! I have some suggestions.

1. If it is possible, we'd better rent a (virtual/cloud) server inside
China. Sometimes it's very slow to access ovirt.org. Maybe we can also
have a sub-domain name such as cnuser.ovirt.org, and make the outlook of
cnuser the same as oVirt main site.

2. Considering the content, we can start by translating primary pages
and slides in ovirt.org. I think in China most of the technical people
are able to read English, so it is not necessary to translate all the
pages. We shall then provide new content that is different from the
oVirt main site. For example, successful customer stories, technical
experience sharing, and all the things you mentioned in the mail.
