Re: unity-distilled list proposal


Hi Mark, i've subscribed since few months, sometimes I got a +1, other
times I wrote about things already decided. Anyway it was easy to me
understand when propose an idea and when jump the conversation.
I propose this way:
1) this ml for newbies, onews, oldies, old ideas: that is the primordial
2) a development ml where selected ideas are brought on, developed,
3) an administration ml where guidelines are discussed.
I think everybody should read the three ml but only selected write.
>From a graphical point of view a forum would be better, but maybe confusing
and requiring administrators, people looking at it many times every day...

Emails of new subscribers would either be allowed to the list, or
moderators would write replies stating the reason for rejection (ideally in
the most constructive, patient and friendly manner – thus not a job for me
–, with pointers to relevant past discussions).

The reading and following-rules challenged could be put back to moderated,
or even disinvited.
