I agree with Terry: the Italian forum has a few moderators, including 
me; I'm regularly following this list but the others do not, either for 
language reasons or because it is actually useless to follow the project 
in detail when the main focus of the user forum is peer-to-peer support 
(and thus the product, not the project).

And with the time they save by not following international lists they 
answer many more user questions than I do; and it's enough for them to 
follow the Italian discussion lists (or the Italian association lists) 
to stay up-to-date with announcements, especially at release time.
