Subject Re: [REQUEST] XML Graphics setup

NOTE: This was sent to fop-dev & batik-dev as I have a question about 
the mailing lists I'd like to clarify before we 'ask' infrustructure@.

When the Apache Forrest project changed to a new domain, they also 
changed from forrest-dev@x.a.o to dev@f.a.o & user@f.a.o. 
Unfortunately, with this change comes (IMHO) a significant problem for 
browsers of the archives: forrest-dev@ mail is a completely separate 
mailing list (with a separate interface). The problem is that 
forrest-dev was used for *all* dev *&* user mailing list traffic, so a 
search in the 'current' mailing lists' archives does not include 
content in forrest-dev (that's a separate search).

For example, with the change to fop-user@xmlgraphics.apache.org, I'd 
like to make certain (if possible or logical) that we don't end up with 
a similar problem.

I'm not certain what the 'solution' looks like (or even if it's a real 
problem!), but I thought we should chat. If it is a problem, we may 
need to set up <mailing-list>@xmlgraphics.apache.org as an alias to 
<mailing-list>@xml.apache.org. IOW, the mailing lists do *not* change 
and we add aliases for @xmlgraphics.a.o.

Is this something we should worry about? IMO, the ability to search 
relevant archives using one search is more important than having a 
'real' address vs. an alias. We still would want to have all headers 
(e.g., Reply-To:) and trailers set to <mailing-list>@xmlgraphics.a.o
