Hi

I am Chinese and now leading Apache CarbonData, very happy to see CarbonData
community having the good mailing list traffic:(copy from Luke Han-2's post)
Project         |  Emails    |   Topics    |   Participants 
HBase          |   610      |    406      |   100 
Spark           |   412      |    88       |   124 
Kylin             |   294      |    144      |   61 
CarbonData |   852      |    250      |   116 
HAWQ          |   284      |    109      |   57 
Trafodion      |   87       |    20       |   25 

I much agree the below points from Bertrand, as long as "the important
community traffic(eg.project's decisions,design discussion, solution
proposal,code issues etc.)" on dev mailing list. 
Use different language to discuss some apache topics which are not important
traffic, should not be a problem.
-------------------------------------------------
As long as the project's decisions happen on its dev list.
Like with any other non-dev-list channel, someone needs to bring
discussions to the dev list as long as they become important - like
affecting the software development as opposed to just being coffee
machine type discussions.

I think an important distinction is between a project's dev list,
which is where project decisions must be made. That one must currently
be in English so that ASF members and the Board can review discussions
and decisions if needed, without relying on imperfect translations.

Having users channels in other languages can be useful but that's
probably only viable for big projects with lots of users, so that each
list can be a meaningful community.

IMO chat channels in other languages than English are not really a
problem, as long as the project's decisions happen on its dev list.
Like with any other non-dev-list channel, someone needs to bring
discussions to the dev list as long as they become important - like
