Subject [VOTE] Change community@ list settings
Date Tue, 07 Jul 2009 21:28:13 GMT

This mailing list is currently publicly archived, but only open for
Apache committers to subscribe and post to. This list policy was set
by a vote [1] in 2002. I would like to change this list to be open to
everyone just like all our public project mailing lists.

Why? Three reasons: a) the extra moderation settings make it hard for
people to post here [2,3], b) external mail archives can't easily get
updates of recent posts [4], and c) I see no reason to restrict the
Apache "community" to include just the committers. This list is today
very different from what it was in 2002.

So, please vote on changing the settings of this list so that everyone
is free to subscribe or post to this list (only posts from
non-subscribers are moderated, see [5] for details). This majority
vote is open for the next seven days.

    [ ] +1 Change list settings (allow anyone to subscribe or post)
    [ ] -1 Keep the current settings

My vote is +1.
