I think you should contact Khaled Hosny as he is the translation
maintainer, and the team owner:



I know the wiki and the website created a medium that some of us liked more than here ... participated, and 
put efforts to build..including me. But now everything is gone.

That's why opensource projects like this has to be group-managed not individual-managed, just in case somehing
like this happened.

Centos - the Redhat Enterprise no-charge distribution - had a similar problem recently due to the same reason:
one-person control of website projects.

Open Letter to Lance Davis

I also see from time to time few projects' sites go forever this way...the maintainer no longer renew the domain,
no other members keep track of this VITAL task, no member goes and renews it...the domain finally goes to someone else, with all the work put in it deleted!

I hope we all learn and restructure our teams management in a more effective way to keep it live and care more
for our members' time and efforts that go away without price for a small arrangement like this!

Another point is that we need to have a code of practice in these
projects that the webmaster "has to" make available the website backup
to at least one or two contactable members of the team, by uploading it
every week or even every month on an accessible FTP account for them, or
any similar solution, for emergencies like this, otherwise, there is no
benefit from putting group efforts on a non-backed up system !!.
