I suppose you have a point.  It's implicit; it should be spelt out.
At http://www.freebsd.org/community/mailinglists.html you have a
choice of "Mailing Lists" or "Non-English Mailing Lists".  -questions
is under the former link; the Polish mailing lists are under the
latter.  At
there's a reference to an inability to speak English.  But we should
really do something about writing a charter that makes it clear.
Anybody feel like having a go?
