>From my previous thread, I've come up with the following list of foreign
langauge OSGeo discussion lists:

 * French: http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/francophone
 * Japanese: http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/osgeojapan-discuss
 * Italian: http://www.faunalia.com/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/gfoss
 * Spanish: http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/spanish

My understanding is that each of these lists would be supportive of
users who, for example, were having a problem with OpenLayers and needed
help getting more help due to their inability to speak English. 

It appears that there are also the following language lists on the
lists.osgeo.org server:

 Dutch -- http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/dutch
 Portugese -- http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/brasil
 Finnish/Swedish -- http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/finland

Would these lists be open to the above?

Also, from the AGM, there were local chapters for:

 * Korea
 * India
 * Germany 

Which are not represented in these lists. Are there lists for these
chapters hosted elsewhere? Would they be open to such questions?
