I think VL has grown to be an international distribution. In my short time here (compared to the many of the forums VL diehards), I've seen contributions to the OS from, Germany, Indonesia, America, Costa-Rica, Canada, Russia, and others.
That being said I think it's odd that we don't have more language choices in the installer. (Just English and Spanish at this point.) It's too late for the latest release, but one thing that would be very valuable would be a French language translation for the installer.
Would something like that be of interest?
