It might be necessary to mention that this is Kurt's opinion.

The subject index thread:
People who are subscribed to just a few mailing lists might very well get
used to this feature. Those who sort their incoming mail into seperate
designated folders are also capable of rewriting the message header upon
mail delivery.

The moderation thread:
There has been a discussion about moderation some weeks ago. I've been
asking people to give me some feedback, and I've received quite much of
it. There were many valid arguments against as well as for moderation, but
the decision was to not moderate the list for the time being. The decision
was mainly based on two arguments: latency and latency. We can't moderate
the list as long as this problem isn't solved yet. I'd like SuSE security
concentrate on solving the issues rather than throttling the information
flow on the public security mailing list.

Johannes Geiger (thanks) came up with the idea of having an FAQ
(frequently asked questions) about the suse-security mailing list. I'm
much in favour for this idea. Would someone vulunteer to write something
so that we can merge the ideas, credits included, of course? I could send
a clean, tidied-up draft to the list every once in a while, probably
clearing up some questions that seem to reoccur every few weeks.

So long,
