Actually, the ubuntu-be list allows 4 languages and at least 3 of them
are used from time to time.

Belgium has 3 official languages (Dutch, French, German) and we use
English as some sort of "lingua franca".  I haven't seen any discussions
in German yet (the German-speaking community being a really small
minority), but the other 3 languages *are* used on our mailing list.

I guess we Belgians are elitist polyglots then...   ;-)
