Or has this mailgroup become a US_only_party? As a US citizen who happens to not work on military projects, I would point out that the statistics might show that those running non-military projects have an easier time finding Ada programmers. Absent a rigorous demographic study of who is on the list, I don't think we can prove much about why nobody posts or does not post job ads for any particular area. We might as well be trying to prove by such statistics that the Europeans are less likely to have management legislation prohibiting inclusion of the "USE" clause.
