I mean any and all information that you'd be comfortable sharing.

Oh, you are maintaining a separate mailinglist server.  That comes as a 
surprise to me.  Both that it exists (I believe I've looked at the web 
pages several times for exactly that kind of info, but I might obviously 
have simply missed it), and why you feel the need for maintaining 
separate lists.

Where are those lists?  Are their archives public accessible somewhere?

...but to answer your question: No, as mentioned above I did not even 
expect you to run own mailinglist server so didn't consider asking about 
that.  I was more specifically wondering on translation tracking - e.g. 
use of Rosetta, Pootle, Yahoo Babelfish, Google Translate, [DDTP] etc.

But let me emphasize again, that I am interested in any and all that you 
feel comfortable sharing openly with us.

You address us as friends and I certainly, dearly(!) want our 
relationship to be friendly.  I do notice, however, that decisions are 
made at your camp (which is great) apparently without discussing openly 
first (which is fine too, but I would prefer if at least the decision 
_process_ was open) and apparently counting on us playing along (which 
is _also_ fine - but your apparent lack of transparency concerns me).

Please do not take this as fingerpointing or wanting to accuse you of 
structuring things in a bas way.  I simply feel unable to gather 
knowledge to even form an opinion on whether you are running a sensible 
organisation or not, and fear that others might feel similarly (or 
worse, might be less tolerant and loose faith in you sooner).

Kind regards, and with best intentions,

   - Jonas
