I'd like to council to discuss the current *$^&!! policy of -dev-announce and -dev. I'd propose to at least implement the following behaviour such that I: - don't have to see some mails 3 (!) times and many 2 times - don't get lost where the mail is/was - get broken threading because the original mail was sent to another list Proposed behaviour: Aautomatically send all mail sent to -dev-announce to -dev. Benefits: - any reply-to hackery for -dev-announce to -dev unnecessary - being subscrived to -dev alone is enough (alternatively -dev-announce can be /dev/null-ed) - threads are complete, instead of scattered over some lists - multiple copies can be avoided - cross-list posting can be reduced to a minimum -- Fabian Groffen Gentoo on a different level
