Hi Tim,

I checked quickly the current PmWikiZhCn package and it contains a lot of spam and test files.
You can safely delete all pages that have file names with Chinese characters in it.
Also some of the other pages are sandbox/spam.
I will have a better check later and clean up and I will ask Petko to re-package.
