"so to let other people know how global Ubuntu's reach has become" 
The idea is great, it makes me think of the wikipedia's homepage. But, do you really think making the planets link to each other would let other people know how global ubuntu's reach has become? Maybe. So, why not, if everyone agrees, Ubuntu-fr's planet will be linking to other planets too.

But I think there are far more ways to show that globalisation, To show people that there are lots of locoteams is a good thing; to prove them they're also working together, is better. 

Ubuntu-fr is working with Ubuntu-de for quite some time now, as we first had hosting issues at the same time. But more than hosting, we are both now starting projects in common. I'm  also trying to get more locoteams involved in these projects - you should soon hear about an interview project, an FTP project, and.... more to come, stay tuned ;)

My final goal is to make these projects popular, in order to prove that ubuntu teams from different countries are able to work together (well, and by the way let people know there _are_ other locoteams ;) ).

For one year now, this mailing list is approaching death; what I suggest is, every time that you start a new project, just think about if it could be interesting for other locoteams, too. Expose your projects here, and get other locoteams involved. I'm often gathering ideas on and, i'd just love if locoteams could just tell us about their great ideas :)
