If we're doing some comdev work regionally, would it make sense to
start creating regional comdev mailing lists as a need arises?  (for
example dach@community.apache.org for the combined German speaking
parts of Europe) For the solutions.hamburg Apache we spent a lot of
time off-list too, because the 100+ mails about details would've been
a burden for the many comdev subscribers who weren't involved.

The result wasn't bad, but:
A.) We might have gotten more Germans involved if there had been a
base of Germans subscribed "listening in" on the list.  Especially
when it came to putting together a German translation of the Apache
brochure.
B.) None of that communication is now archived or visible for
individuals or tools.

I know that YAL (yet another list) can be annoying; and it won't work
if nobody's interested enough to subscribe.  Since the regional
approach to community building is so much more cost effective, it
seems to me to be the way of the future for Apache, and this might
help support the approach. Other opinions?

Regards,
Myrle
