+1 - as well.

I think that we should link to this page.

a little indirect.  On the other hand, linking to the page that lists all of the mailing list
archives is not it either.  It appears that there is not a handy shallow link that finds individual
projects and information about contacting them, accessing their lists, for end users who have
questions.  Perhaps search engines will come to the rescue.  

- The link can be an "Alway Free" button on the topnav.

Does the project want to provide translations to make the information more accessible?

If so, we can make our own version of your page with our project MLs and translations. Somehow
we would want to follow edits to your original page and incorporate as appropriate.

Dave
