Forget it...  

It is the same problem with debian-l10n-bidi 
vers ...-farsi ...-arabic and ...-hebrew. 

You will have only 3 $USER on each list.

Right, but this is a "women" list, which does not fit into the system 
like other lists... I know some women here in Strasbourg which had 
negativ experiences on the LUG of Strasbourg and at debian-user-french.

So there is probaly an exclusion...

They have problems, because they speak only french, arabic or turkish.

Contribute if you can...
And if not, maybe others can help in the OP native language.

Ahhh, and where they must go ?
CoLo a Server and create own Mailinglists ?
Nice Idea !

This has nothing to do with debian-women...
