yes, this is the right place.

Since long time ago it is planned to relaunch the content structure  
and design
of typo3.org. At the same time typo3.com will then be merged into  

The respective project turned out to be a bit problematic  
and was recently stopped. However, there's a new project team preparing
the relaunch right now, this time with a (hopefully) more successful  

As soon as we have the new content structure online (and I hope that  
this will
be the case still this year) we can think about localizing typo3.org  
or parts
of it at least (those parts which currently reside at typo3.com and  
are not
targeted to developers).
