Empty social spaces are no good. We want to prevent them by:
- Checking for whom such a space is useful and who is ready to use it by an initial quorum with some minimal quorum,
- Stating clearly that the space is closed down again if it is not filled after say half a year.
At the moment this would pertain to [ox-de] as well as to a possible [ox-rom].
General discussion mailing lists separated by language make sense. However, general policies are:
Each discussion mailing list needs a maintainer
A maintainer mainly should care about on-topicness.
Support language families instead of single languages
We support language families such as Latin languages instead of a single list for each language.
Basic English for general discussions and other language lists for discussion of local aspects only
General policy: Please limit the topics to locale specific discussions and try to use the integrated list for more general topics.
Express these policies by renaming lists
list-en AT oekonux.org
discussion AT oekonux.org
liste AT oekonux.de
discussion-de AT oekonux.org
discussion-rom AT oekonux.org
Express these policies by a monthly reminder mail
A Wiki should be multi-lingual. Maintenance for all languages is also required, however. How such a multi-lingual Wiki should be structured needs further discussion.
