I suspect that you will find the most current project information about 
OSGeo Projects (and some other Geospatial Open Source Projects) is

These documents are updated every 6 months.

You will notice that these pages are being translated into a number of 
languages. Is translating into Taiwanese something that you would be 
interested to help promote?
