It is not decided yet, but it is expected that postorius and hyperkitty
would be ported to be bilingual by this year's pycon. I suggest you look
for other project, the list on the wiki will be updated soon.

The var folder creation in the currect directory is a design pattern
built for developers. So if mailman does not see any working instance of
itself in the current directory it starts a new instance with `var`
directory in the new location. You can change this behavior in
mailman.cfg, look src/mailman/config/mailman.cfg for [paths.*] sections.
