Subject Re: Separate iBATIS3 mailing list
Date Fri, 21 Aug 2009 11:58:04 GMT
Heh - I hadn't had my coffee yet. ;-)

Here are a few reasons: Pick one or take two, they're small.

#1 - It's a bad idea to fragment an already small community (<1000
users on the list) because one user doesn't want to get the dozen or
so emails a day that the list generates.

#2 - Just like ibatis1, ibatis2 will eventually fade away and ibatis3
will become the main release. At what point do we kill the old list?
When there are 2 people on it?

#3 - I think I'm the only person who does moderation on the ibatis
lists and don't want another one to manage. (NOTE: If someone wants to
do that with me, let me know, it's easy, but when I'm out of the
office the "please subscribe" emails pile up).

#4 - Because of #2, people need to be seeing i3 posts now, even if
they aren't using it. It'll give them an idea of when to switch (is it
stable?), how to switch, and the issues they will likely encounter
when they do.

Finally, if no one replies to your emails in the future, don't worry
about it. We still like you. It's just that your #1 priority isn't
necessarily everyone else's...and judging by the chorus of "me too"
replies on the initial post, a separate list wasn't on the top of
anyone else's list. ;-)
