Subject Re: [DISCUSS] "Who's hiring on Flink" monthly thread in the mailing lists?
Date Fri, 09 Dec 2016 08:36:56 GMT
I appreciate the concern Kanstantsin!

We do have a news@ mailing list, but it has been under-utilized so far.
Perhaps revamping that one would do it?

My only concern is that subscribing to a new mailing list is an overhead.
As a temp solution, we could cc the dev and user list in the first few
(say, 3) threads and encourage folks in these threads to sign up for the
news@ list.
