Description

Let's create a new mailing list for non-technical project issues not covered by a more specific list. One example would be to announce Vegas team meetings. Sending those to tor-dev@ might be considered noise to people who are mostly interested in development. This new list would be open and archived like tor-dev@ is.

Thoughts? If there are no objections, I'll ask our sysadmins to create such a list tomorrow.

Hi Karsten. Personally I don't see a compelling need for the list but that aside, the name is pretty vague. I know you're probably basing it off the irc channel, but there's nothing in the name that conveys what the list is for.

Well, I could also imagine using tor-dev@ to announce Vegas team meetings, if people wouldn't consider that noise. And I think the Network and Applications teams would be okay doing the same thing. The Community team might be different though. But rather than guessing I'll ask them.

but that aside, the name is pretty vague. I know you're probably basing it off the irc channel, but there's nothing in the name that conveys what the list is for.

Good point. Let me clarify the question above and then get back to you here. Thanks for scrutinizing!

The Community Team gets its own list, and I think the other teams will be using tor-dev@.
