No, we don't have such specialized ml, our main channel for discussing all
Ubuntu-mx related things is:
I think most interested people would be able to reply in English there, however
feel free to use Spanish if you want to practice =)

Yeah, it would be awesome, I'm not an admin on launchpad for any ubuntu-mx
topic, however I'm resending this thread to the ubuntu-mx ml to see if some
administrator can help us to create it.
I've already created your credentials on m1.javier.io (which I'll send privately
to you and Prieto). Upon login, you'll find a reply of the db we're currently
using in the drupal forum plugins, I though you could give it a shot and see how
feasible is to migrate to PhpBB.
In the meanwhile, our friends of ubuntu-co (colombia) had already shown interest
in updating their CMS as well, they may be interested in helping with the l18n
efforts as well =)
