In general, Finns, if they can use a computer, can be expected to 
understand and write english. Of course the barrier might be lower to 
ask questions in Finnish. Or Swedish for that matter as it is our second 
official language.

I'm not very aware of how much OpenLayers is used in Finland but my 
guess is that it's or will be growing in the future so I'd welcome 
discussions and questions about OpenLayers in Finnish.

Suomeksi: Chris tässä kyselee voiko OSGeo-suomi listalla kysyä 
OpenLayers -kysymyksiä. Minusta voi, tosin en tiedä minkälainen 
käyttäjäporukka / osaaminen tämän suhteen Suomessa on.
