Hi Gunnar,

     I think maybe I'm not bring message so clearly, let me try again:
     Such account is not a GROUP, it's something like twitter account which
has 20k followers where the author sharing experiences, samples and
anything else...to help to educate users, help to grow up local
communities. I have to say, such account helped a lot for ASF projects'
adoption in China. Back to QQ group, something like Google Group which
everybody could create in seconds.

     Is that Trafodion QQ group created and managed by Trafodion PMC or
someone else? Did your PMCs make decision over there, or just users who
asking questions over there? If "it's invisible to the rest of us" means
decision has been made by your PMCs in QQ group but not in mailing
list...that's really problem and you have to raise to PPMC/IPMC.

     But if it's about user group, there are many local communities
everywhere for sure using different languages, in Chinese, in Spanish, in
Japanese...could we know everything from there? For example, did Hadoop
report include activities from Hortonworks/Cloudera hosted forum, twitter
accounts or Facebook pages "like" number or any other online forums/groups?
They are really user communities too.

      I just shared my experience with you in last reply about how we
handle that...hope it could help you to understand what you could do. And
also brought some facts how user communities formed, operated and what we
have did. And brought some data from different Apache projects, obviously
it's not "an Apache-wide issue that needs to be addressed".

      I'm not argue with you about "Which language is better" or "mailing
list vs QQ/Google Group", I just want to help you to figure the root cause
of your original "struggle" problem.

      But I'm not very agree with you raised such discussion after a new
incubator project proposal (and just changed the subject name)...looks like
we are really not friendly to new comers especially from a different, non
native English speaking (actually most of talent engineers are well
educated with English in China) and different culture world...the team is
so "scary" and asked us many times like "will they cancel the vote? do they
really welcome our project?..." when they saw this thread?

      And, let's focus on your really issue, maybe we could help you:)

      Thanks.

Luke



Best Regards!
