Thank you for the quick response. I'm not sure there currently are a
lot of Russian translators: my address book gives about 25 names. I
tried to collect all of the names from the archives and the old
translation page so I guess there are 30 translators at most.

Is this a real demand? Not quite, I guess, especially given that most
of these translators are inactive (or almost inactive). But as I see
it, the mission of such list would be to *encourage* participation and
involvement. The sole existence of the list cannot convince the people
to join and translate. The discussion can do that.
