Note that IMO a careful selection of language specific lists for users 
and user support is something I think would be good to continue to 
maintain.  The language issue for users (not developers as much) is 
important, and supporting that is something that a number of other 
Apache projects do implement.

But for developer focused lists and other lists where the community 
actually works on the project; in that case, I would tend to having a 
single list instead of per-language lists.  Each time you separate lists 
for regular contributors (people who actually work on 
code/docs/extensions, etc.), you separate the community to a degree.

Just my suggestions to think about
