On xvendor, there was 10 messages in 2004, 6 messages in 2005, 2 messages in 2006, 0 in 2007, and 18 in 2008, most of them about "revitalizing the list". It is unfortunate that such a list existed before, and nobody noticed and told me. Given that there are currently 40-50 subscribers on xvendor, vs 140-150 on distributions@...ts.freedesktop.org, and that freedesktop.org sounds like a better umbrella project than openwall.com, I think that we should simply ask the xvendor subscribers to subscribe to distributions@...ts.freedesktop.org if they are interested. Also, if someone from xvendor@ wants to help with distributions@'s moderation, help is welcomed. > So, yeah, not quite sure how to move forward wrt this.

I agree that restricting the topics is not a good idea, and won't work. -- | Lucas Nussbaum | lucas@...as-nussbaum.net http://www.lucas-nussbaum.net/ | | jabber: lucas@...sbaum.fr GPG: 1024D/023B3F4F |
