Subject Re: [last call] setting up Subversion mailing lists (was: Two other issues to discuss for Subversion)
Date Fri, 13 Nov 2009 11:14:27 GMT
No objection from me for creating mailing lists and svn repo in the  
expected final place.

It's a bit of a pain for podlings to face a double move of both their  
repositories and mailing lists when arriving at Apache. The rationale  
for doing it has many aspects that IMHO don't apply to the Subversion  

That said, I expect very few projects to ask for this special treatment.
