Yep.  So far there are many knowledgeable people in community@
and there seems to be little enthusiasm among them to participate
in forums -- it's just overly time-consuming.

Maybe.  But then there's bugzilla ;-)

Otherwise, the real advice is to use proper mail agents for

Well you can do a search for "форум" at search.altlinux.ru to
identify those interested (there was a recent discussion) and
cooperate woth them [to cooperate with any forum] to bring the
thing up and running.

You're welcome :-)
