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).
