I agree, but I was going to let the list self-regulate until I feel that moderation is necessary. There have been several messages from list members so far that I wouldn't approve if I decided to moderate the list. But so far I only reject UBE ("spam") and there have been several such messages already after I re-configured the list. When list members say they want a list policy announced, I'll do so... or I may decide to do so myself. ;-) Similarly, when pre-moderation of messages from list members becomes necessary, I'll do that as well. And owl-users@ isn't only about asking and answering questions. It's also a place to share experience with using Owl, even if not explicitly asked for it. ;-) Speaking of Piotr's postings, originally the question was on topic (he asked if we patched anything in halt that could be relevant, to which I replied that we didn't). I'd rather see problem reports which turn out to be not related to Owl than not get a bug in our patches reported to us. Then, it's not only our patches which is our responsibility. If we package something for Owl and that turns out to contain a bug, we need to deal with that (such as by forwarding the bug report if not fixing the bug ourselves), too. Then the shouting in the subject line I of course don't appreciate. > On 13 Nov 2001, Piotr Synowiec wrote: > > > On Tue, 2001-11-13 at 19:17, tokiko wrote: > > > > Any ideas would be appreciated. > > > > > > does "shutdown -h now" work any better than halt - it does for me somehow > > > > > no it does not :-( -- /sd
