Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Setup of ooo-users-it and ooo-project-it mailing lists
Date Tue, 13 Dec 2011 16:15:35 GMT
How much traffic do the existing Italian lists get?

My first suggestion would be to create only a single list for Italian 
discussions about AOO, instead of two lists.  If the single list gets 
too crowded, then split it into two lists later - but only split it 
later if it's clear we need separate lists from the amount of traffic it 

While I definitely understand the desire to have some user focus to some 
of the lists (who are probably not very tolerant of lots of technical 
discussions), and have a place to discuss project issues, I'm really 
concerned that we're simply making more and more lists, and will end up 
like OOo was with too many lists.

But that's just my suggestion, and sorry, I don't speak Italian.
