Actually, let's continue that thread on john-users only. In general, let's avoid having entire threads cross-posted to the two lists. Such cross-posts may occasionally be appropriate to move a discussion from one list to the other (if the topic turned out to be more appropriate for the other list). Any such messages should explicitly say which one of the two lists any replies should be sent to. Most john-dev subscribers (including nearly all active ones) are also on john-users, so cross-posting of announcements should generally be avoided. If you want to announce something to both groups, just announce it on john-users. As an exception, extra detail on source code changes (that would be inappropriate on john-users) should be posted to john-dev as a separate message (maybe resulting in its separate thread, which is fine). We have 120+ subscribers on john-dev, 1200+ on john-users, and only under 40 of those who are on john-dev, but are not on john-users. It's their own weird choice. ;-) Thanks, Alexander
