Subject Re: [Discuss][VOTE] Combine the project user and dev mailing lists into user@ and dev@
Date Sun, 12 Mar 2017 20:13:07 GMT
The vote has been open for 5 days now. Based on the tallies and
discussions, it sounds like we'd like to merge the dev lists but keep the
user lists as is. Shall we move forward with combining them now?
