Subject [jira] Commented: (INFRA-2112) Mirrors list code of conduct
Date Fri, 26 Jun 2009 21:23:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-2112?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12724722#action_12724722

James Paul Woods commented on INFRA-2112:

I went ahead and unsubscribed from the mirrors list. It was that or just dump it's emails
into the trash because the email being sent to it has nothing to do with us, or any other
mirror host.

The rules that the recently removed mirrors broke were sent to me, im assuming they were sent
to them. One would assume they aren't running responsible mirrors if they can't keep up with
what's going on.

Hosting an apache mirror on another webserver? That's pretty rich, but as Matthew pointed
out, some of the larger mirrors are doing the same.

If my unsubscription of the mirrors mailing lists means I can't sponsor our mirrors then we
will have to forfeit the multihomed.net mirrors because we don't have time for idle chatter
in mailing lists.

Thank You

> I hope this is in the right area. Mailing lists in general have a code of conduct that
people usually silently abide by. There is never a need to email "thank you" or other random
chatter to mailing lists that are emailing a group of people with the majority having nothing
to do with the issue.
> I've seen this alot since i've been on the mirrors list and I haven't even been on it
long. Probably 50+ trivial e-mails back and forth. 
> I think if lists are constantly abused in this fashion those that are forced to be subscribed
will perhaps ignore the mail all together since it's mostly un-related to the operation of
the infrastructure.
> Thank You
