Subject Re: Community mailing list?
Date Thu, 06 Jun 2013 06:01:45 GMT
Creating new mailing lists divides communities and should therefore be
done with caution.

This community was, until recently, extremely quiet. I'm open to the
idea of another list, but I want to see that it will have the right
effect, and not unnecessarily divide an already small community.

Really, the mission that the ASF has taken on is that of the development
of WIAB. All other goals are more amorphous, and it will take time to
see what shape they will take and how they might fit here.

If folks want it, can we start by using message subjects, eg [DEV] or
[GENERAL] as subject prefixes?

Thx, Upayavira
