Subject Re: Burst of spam on the METAMODEL JIRA project
Date Mon, 16 May 2016 18:41:10 GMT
In lieu the spammer case for our JIRA, I am proposing to create new list
called issues@ to where ALL JIRA update emails will be sent.

Hopefully this will make dev@ list to be safe haven to have tech
discussions.

Thoughts?
