The current group is 95% dedicated to product localization. 

We need a different group for website localisation coordination since the people involved in products and web localisation are often different and I expect a high volume of messages related to web localisation that could add be annoying for product localizers in
I don't see anything wrong with this. I know the existing newsgroup is pretty busy already. And there's not much danger "web" will be confused with a language code.

Japan supports this decision.

Chiming in here -- this will greatly help effective communications with localizers for the Firefox 2 launch as it relates to website content. Who will create this newsgroup, and when? Apologies if these are obvious questions. :-)
Reassigning to server-ops for creation.

any news on the newsgroup creation?

September is next week and many localizers will be back from holidays. We need a way to communicate with them, get centralized feedback and organize translation work.

If we can't have the newsgroup soon, I'd like to know, in this case I will setup a private mailing-list or use mozilla europe's "activemembers" mailing list as an interim solution.

Sorry for insisting again one week later, but if we want a localized, a localized AMO and other niceties like translated press releases etc. for Firefox 2 launch, we need this newsgroup now and not in late September or worse...
