Subject Re: [DISCUSS] "Who's hiring on Flink" monthly thread in the mailing lists?
Date Tue, 13 Dec 2016 09:40:54 GMT
It seems that several folks are excited about the idea - but there is still
a concern on whether this would be spam for the dev@ and user@ lists (which
I share)

As a compromise, I propose to request a new mailing list (
community@flink.apache.org) which we can use for this purpose, and also to
post upcoming meetups, conferences, etc. In order to inform the community
about this mailing list, we can cc the dev@ and user@ lists in the first
months until the new mailing list has ramped up.
