Thanks for your comprehensive reports. However, I did

OK. Sent also to haskell-admin. I misunderstood that address was
only for problems, sorry for that.

See this thread:

I think that is a good point. I said that in my message to the first
address I found. My sugestion was to name the list 'haskell-pt',
and the description could be "Lista de discussão para os falantes
da língua portuguesa" (in Portuguese) or "Mailing list for Portuguese
speakers all over the world" (in English, correct if necessary).

I thought about that. But there are hundreds of millions of
Portuguese speaking people, and probably a few thousands Haskell
programmers, maybe 5 or 10 universities using it for undergraduate
teaching, so I thought it would not be fair that I would be the
list owner. I may not be doing Haskell in a few months, or die in
a car accident, who knows? :)
