Yes, I'd better even merge the content of both articles, and create
a redirect from one name to another. The existing article also contain
some additional information, some of which is outdated. As people
noted, the old russian wikipedia article existed before any other national
articles, and it contains some original content, whereas other national
articles are mostly translations of the english one. So, russian article
misses some useful info that the official one contained, but it contains
some extra info.

Yes, there were some edits in this month. So, it is a bit updated, but
some info, like about L4Linux port, which is discontinued, is a bit

Yes, I also think so. I need to contact the original article authors and
discuss it with them. (I know one of the authors, it is my friend Oxyd.
But he had disappeared for some time, so I need to have the occassion
to meet him again to discuss it). For now, I created the draft for my
translation here: 

Most probably, we'll need to join the content of both articles into the
"Genode" article, and create a redirect from the "Genode_OS_Framework"
page (or vice versa).
