I've no objections.

lots of posts I can't understand on the debian-user list. In fact,
because there will be fewer messages, and a sense of common interest,
you may get better answers (certainly the local newsgroups in
Cambridge have a much better signal/noise ratio than the worldwide ones).

No comments really, but there must be a critical mass of people for
