You can try:
LANG=ru_RU.UTF-8 man 2 read
It is translated.
So the translation start working now, although not all the entries are
translated yet.

Comment 3 Chester Cheng 2007-08-29 05:04:38 UTC
We don't translate man pages in-house at the moment.  Is there any possibility
we get a version from community?

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2007-10-02 04:56:00 UTC
Here are some stats from current fedora man-pages* showing
how many manpages are available for each language:

  7 da
138 uk
200 cs
265 it
303 ru
686 de
711 ko
854 es
1268 pl
2534 fr
2641 ja
3247 en

So Russian is a little below the middle, but not doing too badly.

Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2008-05-01 04:10:50 UTC
Moving back to owner.  Maybe we should move this to Fedora or close wontfix?

Comment 6 Ivana Varekova 2008-05-02 11:40:27 UTC
The latest version of man-pages-ru I have found is 0.98 (29.03.2005) which is
almost the same as rhel4 version - there are a few changes and 6 new man-pages.
I can't find any other source of Russian man pages. 

Comment 7 Ivana Varekova 2008-05-05 08:44:58 UTC
For now I'm closing this bug as WONTFIX, I have not found any other Russian
man-pages sources.
