From the Linux Kernel mailing list.
12.Are there any implicit rules on this list that I should be aware of?
(ADB) Here are a few implicit rules which you should be aware of:
o Stick to the subject. This is a Linux kernel list, mainly
o Use English only!
Linux kernel is developed in English. English is the language used for
getting work done in Linux _and_ the ILUG (and computers generally).
Constitutions/Documents should only be written
in one language to preserve clarity. It's utterly pointless using Irish on the
ILUG at all (I can't read/speak Irish. Stop making out that you're superior. I
don't care what languages you speak, I don't care about other people's
cultural/historical views, I'm using the appropiate language. Why can't others?).
It's pointless having the official language of an organisation as not the
language that they do business in, and their official documents are written
Please, stop all this noise. English will continue to be the language of
work/business/computing in Linux and on the ILUG, I'd bet lots of money on
that. This is irrelevant and off-topic. Excuse the noise.
