Subject Re: @domain for Incubator mailing lists
Date Fri, 16 Dec 2005 22:35:06 GMT
My personal preference is to have incubated sub-projects use mailing  
lists and websites within the TLP containing a notice header that the  
project is under incubation (and may die).  My understanding is that  
you feel having the email address containing the word "incubator"  
will warn users, and I believe that we can achieve the same (or  
better) with a mail footer that contains the notice. Note: we already  
have footers automatically added to every email.

Regardless, my desire for consistency vastly out weighs my arguments  
above, so if the this policy change is approved by the incubator  
community, I would like to see all mailing lists (with the exception  
of the few that are about to graduate) be changed to @incubator.
