Hi Misha -- note that the SELinux User Guide has *not* been verified or 
published for F14 (you will see there is no f14 branch for the 
document). The recent Russian translations all went into the Trunk, 
which we never publish (because this is unstable; it is where all 
development work on documents is done).

I moved the ru-RU translations to the f13 branch, together with a couple 
of commits I saw for de-DE and fr-FR that had also gone into Trunk.

Note to docs maintainers -- this is why it is really dangerous to have 
translation directories lying around the svn trunk or git master of 
documents. In this case, there seems to have been no damage because no 
work seems to have been done in this document since the release of F13.

This is also a hazard that Transifex protects us against (because we can 
choose which branches to make available for translation, and which to hide)

Finally, I think it also illustrates the danger of our mixture of 
version control systems -- the sooner we move everything into Git, the 
better IMHO. Inconsistency invites this kind of mistake because files 
are not where people expect to find them.
