Subject RE: [What?] Why and How did this reach my inbox?

I guess any questions about who is subscribed here need no longer be asked, because we have
no idea who is subscribed via one of these aggregations.

 This list is not a newsgroup, but the gmane newsgroup creates the effect of subscribers without
they're being subscribed here.

Lets not add more blocks to people that what to help here.  Gmane is 
another way for people to connect to the mailing list.  Mailing list, 
Gmane and forums are way that people help and work together without 
forcing people into something they do not want or need.  OOo and LibO 
both have used the Gmane gateway for mailing list, I am sure there are 
others.  It would seem that the ASF already uses the gateway so why not 
take advantage of it?
