Hi all,

I think we're ready to migrate our repository as we've set up all the
requirements for docsbuild-scripts to work, it has currently only 3.6
branch which has the same hierarchy as other translation repos, and master
branch for informations for translators. The current repo is at
https://github.com/python-doc-tw/python-docs-zh-tw, I've requested a
repository transfer to Python's GitHub organisation, please approve if it's
appropriate. Thank you!

Best Regards,
