Hi Florian, *,

this is to inform you that the reply settings on this list have
changed (so-called "Reply to mangling" has been disabled).
So far, e-mails had set a reply-to the mailing list address. In other
words, with any e-mail client, replies to e-mails on the list were
automatically sent directly to the list.
In the past, this lead to two major problems:
[.. pro and cons of reply-to mangling - separate topic ..]
Therefore, I have applied a change:
[.. more pro and cons of reply-to mangling - separate topic ..]
In order to find out the real impact, I simply changed the setting,
and again, I beg for your understanding.
we already discussed that October til December 2011:
kind of resume by me:
I noticed several people objecting against that change, each having "man
years" of commuinity work on their backs.
So this is a good point to hook in:
How do we handle changes affecting hundreds or even thousands of
Three questions from my side:
- what was the final push to do this change *right now*?
- what were the thoughts to do the change *this way*?
- what was the criteria of balancing the effects between change and no
change (not the ones *this* behaviour or *that* behaviour)?
Do not worry: The mailing lists are for the community, so it's the
community deciding how they should work. What I'd like to ask all of
you is to try out for a few days if that change is good for each list
or not. Should we find out it is more harmful than it helps, I will
immediately switch back to the old behaviour.
I still can't see the problem this "test" should solve, which wouldn't
need additional work on, to be solved reliably.
Sorry for this short notice, and I beg for your understanding that I'm
somehow sitting between two chairs here.
Stop doing things You're sorry about. ;o))
