Subject Re: Creating announce@ lists by default
Date Wed, 27 Mar 2013 18:37:13 GMT
My personal experience: There are a few people registered to announce@apache.org, but there
is a low registration rate for the respective subproject lists. At least not for most projects.



Thus said: if you would create an announce list for all projects and send the ANN mails only
to those lists, then only 30% of the audience will receive it.
Some projects don't even maintain separated dev and users lists. Thus I believe forcing an
ann list for each and every project is an overkill.



Oh, and while we are at it: some a.o projects have users@project.a.o (plural) and others have
user@project.a.o (singular). We should at least unify this for the upcoming podlings pretty
please ;)

just my $2E-2

LieGrue,
