Re: mailing lists


I do agree, but may I recommend that there's a proper joint announcement with UBports before closing and a deadline, so that people can be informed of alternatives and decide if they want to move one to the UBports mailing lists (or whatever)?

    We are not unwilling to change our mindset, we need to be a bit
    opportunistic with what is working and whats not. If there are 2957
    people on the Canonical mailing list, why there are not more posts, I
    ask you? For sure there is an overlap in users, so that people that use
    Telegram/Forums are also subscribed here. The question remains, why is
    nobody using this mailing list and the 3 other lists we set up in
    https://list.ubports.com/mailman/listinfo ? Our list server is dead
    since beginning... You can advertise this list or ours, but I dont think
    you will have much response.

I think we should shut this list down. It's been 2 years since we handed Ubuntu Phone over to UBPorts. They've been great stewards of the project, and I wish them well, but it's misplaced to continue using this list.
