Subject Re: [DISCUSS] "Who's hiring on Flink" monthly thread in the mailing lists?
Date Fri, 09 Dec 2016 13:12:47 GMT
I'm against using the news@ list for that.
The promise of the news@ list is that its low-traffic and only for news. If
we now start having job offers (and potentially some questions on them
etc.) it'll be a list with more than some announcements.
That's also the reason why the news@ list is completely moderated.
