in texlive-ru, section 9 (Acknowledgements), various persons are
mentioned by name.

It's a matter of fact that in western languages it's often nearly
impossible to know how a particular character is pronounced.
Cyrillic is obviously much less ambiguous in this respect.

The document contains the line

  Мойку Миклавец за помощь с форматом ConTEXt.

I must admit that I didn't know know how to pronounce the 'c' in Mojca's
name either, until I met her in person.  Her name is Мойца, not Мойка.

BTW, my family name is pronounced Котуха, not Котуча. ;)

As an aside, in order to avoid confusing unexperienced users, I would
call ConTeXt a "program" rather than a "format".  IMO only experts
have to be aware of format files.
