By having this new "send-only" mailinglist, monitored by

It is not a mailinglist for discussion, just a simple way of reaching
out for help to a whole team at once.
This should be far more efficient than the previous approach of "just
find the nearest SUSE-employeed volunteer and ask them nicely".

Question.

If it is "send-only", the sender will not see the reply unless you send
the reply both to mail list and direct to poster. Or perhaps only to the
poster.

Suppose the same question is asked by another person sometime later
(months?). As he can not read the list, he doesn't know that there is a
previous answer. Maybe it is not even archived, so perhaps you have to
write again another answer.


Question 2 / idea.

When someone says in a bugzilla that this bug is duplicate of another
private bug, instead of then asking on the mail list, the data could
simply be posted to the 2nd bugzilla, where is archived and searchable.
