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

I think Ian's proposal makes sense. There is no real need to have a pre-fix, I raised this because it seems to be convention with debian and many other projects. Personally I don't like xen-... xenproject-..., etc. Let's wait for a couple of days and see what else comes back and then I can make a concrete proposal for voting. I also need to check with timescales on the domain change.

I don't think that our developers will want a forum.
However for user questions, we created http://xenproject.org/help/questions-and-answers.html which are inessence a forum. You just need to start using it.

So what do you think?

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.

From an outsider / lurker perspective, xen-marketing@xxxxxxxxxxxxx is a
good fit.

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 /
