Indeed. It's the end of the year, I have some time to catch up on emails, and that means:
think ahead!

Quite. And I would just nuance it: it's not about nations, which organize on the ground resources
to help users and contributors but about language, which in diaspora floats above political
boundaries, at least in theory, if not in fact. (In fact, it articulates empire.)

I would actually be rather interested to see if ASF would even look to this podling as an
experiment of sorts, that may be applied to other more or less similar projects. What would
be applied: the linguistic float and the PR process. Mind I do not wish to usurp Apache's
hierarchical structure; I see that as reasonable and logical.
