Re: [steering-discuss] Base - a new mailing list?


Don't be sorry. First of all, it's all "imho". Second, it's not that it's
too much trouble. It's a matter of management and efficiency. Small and
large FOSS projects tend to be rather conservative when it comes to opening
new lists and the way it's supposed to work is not that if you have a
mailing list, something will happen, but the opposite (if something happens
with enough momentum it becomes threads and threads of discussion and actual
work, then create a mailing list). The risk is that you end up with twenty
different mailing list you won't follow,but worse, most of these mailing
lists won't have an actual workig purpose.I think if there's a team that is
fixing bugs on Base and liaising with documentation volunteers right now but
facing communication issues, then there might be an interest. On the other
hand, these things tend to evolve overtime and the situation can change :-)

Hi :)
Ok, sorry i asked.  If it's too much trouble to set up a list then it's not
worth it.
Regards from
Tom :)

I thought everyone was on discuss@. However your argument of yet another
list is almost a contradiction with your initial request. And I'm sure if
there's an interest to work on Base, then people will cope with being on an
existing list.

Hi :)
People are often unwilling to join yet another list as it would mean
having
to deal with a ton of irrelevant emails.  Individuals might be willing to
join a low-traffic list specific to Base but not yet another list  that
just
provides so much distraction.
Regards from
Tom :)

How about the discuss@ list with a [Base] prefix?

Hi :)
No, it's a few individuals scattered across a few different lists.
Bringing the few people together might be enough to help them start
getting
some work done.  One more mailing list might not be enough but it could
be a
good start.

Tom :)

Hello Tom,


2011/9/11 Tom Davies <tomdavies04@yahoo.co.uk>

Hi :)
A few people have asked about starting up a new mailing list to try
to
bring together people that want to work on Base.  People from
Documentation,
Developers perhaps later on some people from Design.

At the moment there are people that want to work on Base but each is
isolated and 'waiting' for people on other teams to do things that
need
to
be done before they can start.

Could we start up a new mailing list to allow cross-group
collaboration
on
Base?  Who should i ask to set it up?  Should i ask the web team?
Regards from
Tom :)

what would be the goal of such a list beyond "bringing people
together"?
Do
you have team(s) of volunteers from documentation, development and
design
ready to take action ? I'm a bit concerned that one more mailing list
is
not
going to magically solve Base's lack of contributors...

Best,
Charles.
