What's noise to you is signal to others. For example, my interest is servers, so all of your posts are mostly noise to me, but to others it's essential signal. Same goes for the scientific re-org recently discussed. And I'm sure the same goes for PHP & webapp stuff.

I think a -dev-announce ML is a good idea, with reply-to set to -dev. But I also think you're over-exaggerating the situation by a long way, sorry. Best regards, Stu -- PS: If anyone needs anything posting on -announce, I'm one of the people you can bribe :) -- gentoo-dev@g.o mailing list
