Date Sun, 18 Dec 2005 04:49:14 GMT
Please vote on the following:

  New mailing lists should be created under the
  @incubator.apache.org domain, just as all of
  the other project resources, e.g., the web
  site and SVN subtree.

+1 from me.

Subject: @domain for Incubator mailing lists


There has been some discussion and confusion over where to put mailing lists
for projects that are in the Incubator.  As the person who argued for the
current approach, which had to do with infrastructure issues, I'm also going
to suggest that it change.  We are finding that it is more and more
important to highlight when a project is in the Incubator, and to ensure
that there is no confusion in the mind of the public about that status.

The current approach is to put the mailing lists under the domain of the TLP
into which it was expected that they would go, and THE REASON for this had
to do with the difficulty of moving the mailing lists and the eyebrowse
archives.  HOWEVER, Roy has since written a script to move mailing lists,
and we no longer use eyebrowse.  And unlike the prior setup, it is fairly
straightforward to redirect an old archive location to a new one.

THEREFORE, new mailing lists should be created under the
@incubator.apache.org domain, just as all of the other project resources,
e.g., the web site and SVN subtree.
