[tdf-discuss] Posting on the right mailing list(s)
While I am one who likes to promote the exchange of information on such
projects as LibreOffice; I would like to suggest perhaps a tweaking of
the postings to the mailing lists. Here is what I would suggest:
* if you are posting to a list, that you consider where your post should
be sent, and, try to minimize the amount of cross-posting to other
lists. I was/am under the impression that the lists are contributor
lists where their label describes their function. When a post is sent to
multiple lists, please consider carefully the reason(s) why you post to
these other lists; are these "work" items for the members of that group?
If you have cross-posted and find that only members of one list have
responded to you, then, more than likely, your choice of sending off the
post to multiple lists may not have been the best choice.
If cross-postings are kept to a minimum, then, we will all be better
placed to contribute rather than spending more time re-examining a post
that should not have been delivered there in the first place.
If you do cross-post to make people aware of an item of common interest,
then OK. But if your post is of interest only to one contributor group,
then, maybe it should only be posted to that group and not many others;
this to help minimize the extra noise on the lists.
Just my thoughts on this.
