Subject: Re: [tdf-discuss] LibreOffice general ideas and suggestions

2. The discuss@documentfoundation.org NEEDS to at least offer the option 
to allow users to receive one or two "all messages" combined Email 
(usually called Digest option) instead of so many separate Emails being 
received by all of us.

How and where would this be accomplished at the 
discuss@documentfoundation.org website ?

Speaking ofdiscuss@documentfoundation.org messages, would it not be a 
good idea to have in the message Subject line the OS or specific topic 
that the message pertains to ?  Such as "Win 7", "Windows 64bit", 
"Fedora", "Mac OS", or "Libre Wordprocessor" and so forth. That way, we 
all know exactly what OS or topic that the message is referring to.

Joe, sorry to barge in here, but I've been laying off to try Open 
Office, and when I got the LibreOffice email, I decided it's time 
to try it. I'm all for open source and moving Open Office away 
from Oracle.
However, I am totally confused! I've been beta testing for 
Microsoft for several years, and there are Forums where things 
are discussed, depending on the subject. I hate Forums, and I'm 
sorry, but this is even worse!
 
Is there anything like discussion forums online where I could go 
to see the messages in subject form so I wouldn't be so totally 
lost?

After reading through a lot of mails today and yesterday it's my 
understanding that this list will be available at gmane 
<http://www.gmane.org/> which provides a lot of opportunities to 
get this list as you like it. 

In addition I read that there is also an online forum on its way. 
It is said that it will be for end user questions but once set up a 
beta-tester sections should be addable but I don't know the 
infrastructure nor the uses forum framework. 

But from my experience the average end user prefers forums because 
he thinks them to be more clear but in the end he just starts a new 
topic because none of the presented ones seems to match his 
need/question.
