Hi,

wouldn't it be possible to put a sticky post on top of each mailing list and explain which topics should be sent to each mailing list?

Additionally, some rules about the expected behavior when participating on the mailing lists would be helpful, too.

Both topics come up from time to time. Maybe it is not a perfect solution, but it might help a lot in the mean time.

Thanks,

Simon

Yes, I agree. We should have a sticky topic that explains the topics of the list and how they relate to others, as well as netiquette we would like to see on the list.
