Subject RE: [CLOUDSTACK-1001] Hyper-V Documentation for Review

Thanks Giles for understanding.

Purpose is just one: soliciting feedback. Yes, true that I had no time in hand to send across
three separate messages for the same purpose.

I did not never realize this would create so much chaos. I am stopping here.

There may be exceptional situations that require this. *May* be. 

e.g. - major security issue, perhaps - but we have an announce list for that. Notice that
a piece of critical infrastructure (website, wiki, mailing lists) will be down, sure. 

Things that don't rise to that level: Requests to look at a patch; support requests; etc.

I do. There was no specific "hey, this needs attention from a marketing perspective" message
there. And if there *is* a need to get *specific marketing feedback* then send a *separate*
message with actual requests curtailed for that list.

I don't find the "no time to send three seperate mail" excuse compelling, either. You're essentially
telling every subscribe to these lists that your time is more valuable than theirs by cross-posting.
