Well, we should better define task and subject of each mailling list.
I was planning about -i18n, as we have a straight usage for this ( ie,
people helping on website translation and so on, and later, translation
of projects ).

But for a communication ml, i think we need a goal/mission/whatever of
the ml, so people can decide where to subscribe, etc.

So if you have a proposal about this, do not hesitate ( a little bit
more formal than the one of the wiki, if possible :) ).

I would prefer pirate pad because this can be hosted on our own
infrastructure later ( which can be important for web single sign on, to
ensure the confidentiality if needed ), and because that's free software
( which is imho a important statement for a group that try to promote
free software ).
