I can live with the cross-posting, in particular if it makes easier to
find an old thread - if the council meeting threads were sent to both
gentoo-council and gentoo-dev, it would certainly be easier to find it
on gentoo-council archives than gentoo-dev's. The cross-posting may also
be used to promote a discussion in a smaller ml, such as gentoo-council,
and to inform the wider audience in a general ml, such as gentoo-dev, of
decisions or important arguments in a discussion.
In any case, if people prefer to ban cross-posting, I can also live with
it. If we go down this route, then council issues, such as the agenda
for the meetings, should probably be discussed in the gentoo-dev ml to
ensure a wider audience.
