I did not "question the choice of English as the current
language for the list". I was one of the initiators of the
Yasmin list. English was the obvious language but you will
notice that Yasmin is open to any language from the MedRim
understood by the moderators.
I just raised the issue of languages as part of our history
and heritage. And of "automatic translation" as a
possibility for the future.
