What about the French Canadian community? You don't think it would be
good to run a bilingual English/French site? I've always understood
there's a lot of sensitivity about these things in Canada. What do you
think about that aspect?

So far we (French Canadians) are hanging out on the FR mailist and I also use the FR website. I think that we are fine with this separation. The difference with the English and the French sites are that I can ask the French community if I can open a French Canadian page and most likely this will be OK with them. The opposite is not possible as the International site is English and there is no possibility to open a page dedicated to English Canada.

This is why I thought the EN site was a good option as we (the first language English countries) could have our own pages under one large EN designation. The we could just do up our own pages according to our particular needs.

But, if we are to separate into more sites, then it makes sense again for EN Canada to pair up with the US site.

The I guess the suggestion would be for UK to umbrella AU and NZ sites.

We could run into further problems when other first language English countries ask for the same options. I think that Liberia is a first language English country -- they have modelled their country to the US model.

It could be that the EN site would offer a better option than separating into different EN sites.
