Subject RE: [all] Math needs a "user" email list.
Date Fri, 13 Aug 2004 19:21:22 GMT
Sorry, but I still am not seeing the need here.  There is very little commons-user traffic
related to [math].  My understanding is that the http-client split was driven by high traffic.
 Commons-dev and commons-user benefit from a large community who comment / make suggestions
on multiple components.  I am opposed to splitting j-c components into separate lists / projects
unless the traffic reaches the "bothersome" level.

	Phil, Its unclear to what your agreeing? Hen was +0. Your comment sounds
	like your not wanting it (ie -0).
	I strongly think the reason that commons-user is low traffic is that
	users do not want to get email for stuff they are not interested in nor
	do they want to manage complex filter rules on their email, so they
	never join it.
