I don't want to start a long discussion here, and if you reply to this
please do so on -project. I would post this there only but I think I'll
miss my target audience - which is devs who aren't interested in
- -project material and want -dev to be a technical list.
If you are a dev who wants to see only technical commentary on this list
please do yourself a favor and DON'T reply on this list to non-technical
issues. If somebody feels like they get 2 replies on -project and 50
replies on -dev (even if it is just telling them to buzz off) they're
going to post on -dev as the perceived impact is higher.
Just ignore stuff like this on -dev, and post replies on -project.
And for those among you who aren't devs and would like to be able to
participate on -dev in realtime without moderation, participating in
these sorts of discussions on -dev isn't the way to accomplish your
goals. Let's give -project a chance, shall we...
And again, I apologize for cross-posting this on dev. Please feel free
to tell me to buzz off, but for everybody else's sake do so by private
