Subject RE: Bugzilla e-mail is bouncing and other e-mail issues
Date Mon, 05 Sep 2011 16:44:21 GMT

Will the Apache OOo Bugzilla make e-mail reports of issue creation and other actions.  If
so, is not ooo-issues@i.a.o where those will go?  Sort of like ooo-commits for issue tracking?

If not, are we going to see all of the Bugzilla reports on ooo-dev?  That could be painful.

[We need to inventory this level of detail somewhere so that we know what not to break and
know when something has been done.  I'm thinking of branches to detail off Kay Schenk's nice
migration page on OOOWIKI.  Is that a good idea?]

I propose the issues@* lists are bundled in one single instead.

In active times, the volume on the general all-bugs list was unbearable
and even on some issues@*.oo.o lists was very high, especially for the
main applications and l10n project, so at the end maybe 5 or
6 additional ooo-issues-*@i.a.o will be needed where people can
subscribe to their area of interest.

Makes sense.

Any opinions on creating one ooo-issues@i.a.o for now and maybe
additional ones later as needed?
