If not simply for logs and historical tracking.
Although I think the gentoo-council mailing list makes sense, I don't really mind where we post our ideas and discuss them. As long as we agree and do discuss them. What I care a lot about is that we only have one list. Not everything will be purely technical or non-technical. Where do we draw the line? In case of ambiguous topic most will just post at random, others will tend to always post on the same list, and in the end we'll have to read 2 lists to make sure we catch all what would have interested us on only one of them. Not counting those who really don't care about the council and will complain about our gibberish. So why bother? So, whichever list it is I don't mind, but please make a decision because I have stuff to push there. Denis.
