Thanks for your mail.

So let it be clear, while I really don't think it's a good idea to have 2
mailing lists, I already agreed to discuss it in a response of your mail.
Or to be more accurate, I think we should just launch a formal question
about that and collect the yes and no. Then someone will take the
responsibility to follow or not this consensus.

Noah, I don't think that launching a new ml could be see as a test and we
could cancel it at any time is really productive. If the choose of a
distinct advocacy  mailing-list is done by the community, then the
community and people that want to put efforts on it should focus on making
it a succes (more than what have already be done in other created mls).

I still don't see why you can start to see if it works on @dev anyway. If
@dev is show as an "hostile" ml, then there is already a problem. And it
should be solved first. You can advocate anything, but if the same people
goes your "safe" mailing-list it will be the same. I already elaborated

Last thing. I really wish we could just talk about advocacy. marketing is
just a way to advocate (and mainly for those who are thinking in term of
market shares).
