I am the participant of working group on translation svnbook on Russian and 
one of two moderators of a mailing list l10n-ru at

In far 2004 I have addressed in dev at 
( with the request for 
granting 'write access' in Subversion repository for accommodation of 
chapters svnbook which I have translated.

I have received such answer from Erik Huelsmann <e.huelsmann at>:

For today our working group totals at least four active participants. However 
the problem consists that is difficult to be engaged in command development 
not having one of the main tools for this purpose - is repository.

Yes, Dmitriy Popkov <dimentiy at> has 'write access', but probably 
has no enough time to be engaged in translation. To this I have decided to 
address once again with the request for granting 'write access' in for me.

with best regards,
