Subject Suggestion for Mailing list page
Date Thu, 14 Dec 2000 10:40:20 GMT
I'd like to suggest that the mailing list page http://jakarta.apache.org/site/mail.html
should be modified so tomcat-users appears before tomcat-dev. 

I suspect many people with usage related questions jump on tomcat-dev to post 
because it's the first list under Tomcat, and "The Tomcat Developer List" sounds 
appropriate. Many people won't bother reading down far enough to see the warning 
about sending configuration and usage questions.

If tomcat-users were the first list under Tomcat, we might see fewer off-topic posts 
on this list. Other projects might benefit from the same rearrangement.
