Oi,

Language specific lists are good tools to engage local communities where
users are not fluent in English.

That being said, however, I must agree with Louis. Despite the ease of
engaging local communities, local lists also quickly led to communication
problems between the local and the international groups putting them,
sometimes, at opposite ends.

The idea of an RSS linked Wiki, hosted at the Apache infrastructure, seems
to be a better way to restart the Regional Projects.
