Good idea. Why don't you set up such a mirror? It doesn't have to be on 
the same site.

Yes indeed. You can even do this manually.

There are thousands of different mailing lists and billions of Web pages 
in languages other than English. There are not enough people to 
translate them all. I get ruby-dev mails, and I can read them all if I 
want, but most of them are not really that important. It doesn't make 
sense to translate them all just because somebody might want to read 
some of them.
