Re: [Xen-devel] [Xen-API] [Proposal] Additional mailing lists for specific purposes


seems nobody has any views. How about I make a more concrete proposal. I also noticed that we have no real global list for voting and proposals (and to discuss issues like this). I have to include all lists, which creates spam. As already indicated on the blog, at some point we should move to @lists.xenproject.org, which will cause some impact on mailfilters, etc. (similar to when we moved from @lists.xensource.com to @lists.xen.org about a year ago). So that may be a good opportunity to deal with some inconsistencies that have grown over time.

It also raises questions about naming conventions for new lists. Should lists be
- xen-...@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, or should they be
- xenproject-...@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
And then of course, should any convention be forward looking or should we rename lists to be consistent and (as we are already changing @lists.xenproject.org, changing the actual list name may not be any worse).

On new lists, we will need lists for
Also, for example XAPI does not have a separate dev or user list. That is also one to consider at some point.

Anyway, I am just putting these into the room for discussion.

2) A semi-private invite mailing list for ALL project leads,
committers and maintainers of ALL projects hosted on xen.org
Similarly to above: xen-private@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Both of these list names are used in other projects I'm working with /
