I can list the following participants:

Maverick Crank GRey <maverick.crank.grey at> 
Dmitriy Popkov <dimentiy at>
FLamY <flamy at>
Kolotov Alexandr <akmypost at>
"vassily ragosin" <vr at>
Alexander Leschinsky <badger at>
dmitriy lopatko <dmitrii_lopatko at>

But, probably with a repository two persons will directly work. In case of 
granting access it there will be I and, certainly, Dmitriy Popkov 
<dimentiy at> which such access already has. Interaction will 
occur to other participants of working group by means of a mailing list. 
Probably, the mechanism based on patch-files will be used.

Yes, I personally have full translation of the following files:
- foreword.xml
- ch00.xml
- ch01.xml
- ch02.xml
- ch01dia1.png
- ch02dia1.png
Translation is based on revision 10749. By the way, I already spoke about it 
many times.

Big revision number because at that time the book still was in the main tree 
of source code. But I think, that this translation is obsolete not too

Yes, have decided. The same mechanism, as in the Norwegian edition of the book 
will be used. That is, while translating the original text will be saved and 
mark special markers (<!-- @ENGLISH {{{ ... @ENGLISH }}} -->). And, from time 
to time, merge of last English version to Russian translation will be carried 
out. Makefile for performance of such synchronization I have already written.

Besides we would like translate to Russian this page - It would allow Russian-speaking users, as well 
as for example speaking on Italian or Spanish, always to have access to last 
translation revision.

with best regards,
