OK, understood. Don's arguments make sense and I see the rationale behind not having -devel-india (avoid balkanization.....). I even support it, though admitedly there *are* -devel- lists thatr are more or less this (debian-devel-french comes to mind even though the official rationale for the list is being in French....practically speaking it is seldomly used as a list for development, or developers, in France). Anyway, extending debian-dug-in to some "devel related" topics, is certainly not a problem, particularly when these topics are a consequence of events organized in India (such as this thread about diaspora packaging).
