So was I. There has been no change of policy. Please feel free to write to the 
list in your native language, and assuming someone understands its, someone 
should probably reply.

The team itself can read or write fully or get by in:
English (US, GB, AU :) )

Other contributors can reply in more languages I'm sure.

MOST posts are in English, and we do make announcements in English, however 
there is no requirement for users to post in English. Team members may 
actually reply in English if thats all they can write, even if they 
understand another language.
