My firm believe is that we can easily combine the US and Canada on one list,
the question is what would that list name be.  I really do not want to
alienate any of the Canadian list members by calling it if there would be any concern from the Canadian

If we do go with that I guess at some point when the Canadian and US
marketing teams grow we can always split Canada out.  If everyone is in
agreement I would like to see this list soon.

especially for English, and Spanish.  There are so many areas that both
these languages are spoken that it would be hard to cover marketing based
it.  The advantage however is that the materials will be able to be used
more than one place. and all these materials will be available on the
website for everyone to use.  Where the mailing is going to come in is in
organizing events.  That I feel needs to be based more on geography.  It
would be hard to organize events for the US on a list that included
Austrailia, South Africa.  Looking at a map of countries where English is
the offical language there is at least one country on every continent.
Spanish is almost the same. 21 different countries on 4 continents.

Marketing by geography is exactly my point. I might have problems in
writing in English, which is not my native language, but I do not think
that my message could be interpreted in a different way.

So, localization and documentation will be by language (exactly as the
OOo project), while marketing will be by geography. Of course, one will
be able to use manuals written in another country in the same language,
while I wonder if the same could happen with presentation (apart from
product presentations).
