Firstly we have created a new
opensuse-support(a)o.o mailing list
Can you please clarify what is the difference to opensuse(a)opensuse.org?
I don't get it...
The board felt that have been many issues with the way at times
opensuse(a)opensuse.org has offered support over the years this list as
part of a community members assessment from the last days probably
highlights some of the issues
* off-topic posts
* derogatory posts
* abusive posts
* extended rambling
* me too's
Agreed these issues exist. But this is a problem of human behavior/lack
of self control by those posting.
We as the board are aware of a number of community
several on the board) who are willing to offer support to users but have
since left the opensuse@ list or have mail filters because they thought
it wasn't effectively fulfilling its role. There have been several
attempts over the years to better focus the mailing list and improve the
way it works none of which really worked that well and given the number
of people that had left we felt the best way forward was to create a new
list and hope that many of the people who previously left the old list
join the new one. The board also discussed whether we really even still
needed a mailing list for support or whether there was something else
like the forums that would be a better place.
I guess that makes the bottom line rather clear, at least form my
perspective. You HOPE that those that have the occasional laps of reason
or those that exhibit tendencies of the issues described above will not
subscribe to the new mailing list.
Good luck with that.
