Hi guys, :-)

@Bernhard: OK, Bernhard, I published your changes. But I think that
Drew and Marc *may* be irritated about this. We have a problem.

This is an English-language site, and the English-speaking communities
are not getting to mold the content to the needs of *their*
communities. It is effectively making English speakers second-class
citizens in the project, because the NL sites get to develop their
content the way they like, but the different English-speaking cultures
are not getting an opportunity to communicate in a tailored manner
with their particular communities and markets.

IMHO, the time has come for individual English-language sub-sites for
English-speaking cultures having individual needs.

@Christian: I think we need to change mindset here. Remember that .us,
.ca and .uk are the domain roots of those three countries. If you
insist on, and, you are going to considerably reduce the
usefulness of the domains. People in those countries don't identify
with en-us, en-ca and en-uk.

This is not simply a *language* thing here. It's about prominent and
distinct cultures being able to communicate with and provide
information for their particular communities and markets. So it's a
cultural thing and a marketing thing.

I specifically want to ask for,
and AFAIK, the SC is going to discuss the issue,
so I guess there will be a decision about this.
