Yes, another list is unlikely to duplicate the quality of the main firewalls
list, but it may serve to propagate information from it to those
for whom the english list is less accessable.
2 Meg of text per month is a lot to read through,
even if your are fully at home in the language. (I would not be able to keep
up with a list of that volume in french, nor would a feel confrotable asking
questions in it.) The difficulty is not always from lack of interest or effort
in the language, some of us are not as blessed with the talent.
I don't think it will be as useful to you, as you are more skillful in English
than many natives of English speaking countries, but there may be enough
people who are knowledgeable in firewalls, and not as facile in English.

Good point, I agree. Also, some of us who aren't entirely at home in French
may use the list to improve our reading skills in French, while picking up
some firewall points. (Assuming the list does not reach the same large
volume that the English list has.
A major challenge will be to provide the kind of effective management that
Brent does. (Thanks Brent.)
If the subscribers are there, it's certainly worth a try.
