Re: Mailing list reorganization summer 07, round 1

I replied to some parts of this mail in the reply to jwb already. Some
more here:

I fear this will become a problem. I'll think about it some more; see
also my to-be-written reply to Karsten (not sure yet if I'll find enough
time for that today)

+1, nevertheless I wanted to list it

Gone from proposal.

BTW, sorry, I just mentioned this idea in another mail -- seems that was
not my idea and was instead your one which my mind picked up now (I
skimmed over your mail some hours ago already)

I think this is something for the Board and FESCo.

But I more and more think we need such a coordinator, to avoid that each
and every SIG gets a own list. Sure, for some SIGs it makes sense, but I
find it unhelpful that for example the games-sig has it's own list, but
doesn't report much of their doings on the normal lists -- that IMHO
would be crucial to make sure non-lists members that maintain games in
Fedora know what's up (easy information flow) without following yet
another mailing list.

Added to the proposal (as FIXME for now).
