I would suggest that all communities would share the same Drupal installation. That also nicely solves the issue with very small local sites, as they would take up little resources, too.
In theory, yes. But in practice (at least from my knowledge of Drupal) I believe sharing a single Drupal installation among multiple communities using different languages would require a major localization undertaking (most likely including PHP customization) and a lot of coordination, which I don't think Haiku has the resources for.

The administration would have to be carried out by the community sites themselves, of course, together. But I don't know Drupal well enough to know how complex their internationalization module is in daily use, so I can't tell if it's really feasible - it would just be the most painless solution :-)

I am sure making a multilingual website based on Drupal is technically feasible. However, that is not something that any of us are particularly interested in: we have limited resources, and we want to focus them in serving and expanding the Spanish-speaking community.

If Haiku has the resources to make a multilingual site happen, then we could entertain the idea of using it. But I doubt that is the case (correct me if I am wrong, of course).

Given the circumstances, the most painless solution would actually be to have a separate site for the Spanish community. :)
