For me, I would prefer that the list be multilingual. People could put
the language in the subject line, for example. Otherwise, there would
just be more lists to subscribe to. Of course, that is easy for me
to say because I can read Portuguese and Spanish. (Writing in Portuguese
is difficult for me, though.) And I don't mind seeing other languages.
I would rather include the largest possible number of people in any

Of course, English is probably the lingua franca of the community,
lamentable though that might be. So there are probably more people
who can provide responses to messages written in English. But we
should not exclude the expertise of people who find English difficult,
nor should we limit their ability to ask questions. Perhaps some of us
volunteer to translate substantive messages between languages...
