What is currently the situation with Russia? From what I know there are 
no lists, and I am just categorizing images by hands 
doing roughly a hundred per day and creating missing categories. The 
organizers do not participate in any on-wiki discussions, and do not 
disclose any info on their plans, but at some point they declared they 
have perfect contact and understanding with the international team. Do 
you know whether there are any Russian lists somewhere (except for 
Commons and the last year lists on ru.wp) or are they going to be 
imminently created? If the work I am doing now is planned to be done by 
bot soon I would rather drop it and do smth more useful.
