Re: [steering-discuss] Off-topic - please move to discuss@

Hello Ian, Tom, Paulo,

2011/9/13 Ian Lynch <>

The general notion here was that
having a separate Base list would not serve the purpose - so what
other, concrete proposals are there to discuss within the SC?

The general notion you're saying, IMHO, comes from people who are not
directly involved in Base's issue itself. How many of those people who
saying "no" to the creation of the new list will be directly working on

If there are none yet, I'd indeed appreciate it if general
brainstorming would *not* happen on this list.

Maybe you should invite people who are willing to contribute on Base to
in this discussion, wherever it should happen.

Why would a Base list not help? It would at least provide a potential
So providing a Base list seems like a concrete proposal :-)

Concrete proposals are:

- a bugfix
- a patch for a new feature (might be matching one or more easy hacks)
- bug reports
- UX testing
- marketing collaterals
- Design Requests For Enhancements studies
- documentation writing
- localization work

The rest is not a concrete proposal. A concrete proposal of a new mailing
list is nothing. It's an invitation to talk, and talk is *very cheap*.
Talking is not doing. Talking is not contributing. As far as I can see no
one of the "several volunteers demanding a Base mailing list" are doing
anything of the above. You have a patch? you have code? you have bug
reports? Do you have anything of the above? If you have anything of the
above, you will realize something: it's already happening  and being
documented through a mailing list :-)
