This is definitely a redhot topic for Russian team as we have quite a 
few members interested in translating manpages.
It seems that up until now manpages have been translated by separate 
groups of enthusiasts across different projects
and there hasn't been one centralized resource.
I agree with Dimitris and would like to think that could 
make it possible to unite all interested parties.
