Would anybody have objection to closing the forums and making the mailing lists the primary mode of exchange for JDBM?
I find the forums to be a little cumbersome compared to email.
I know that I was able to get up to speed *much* faster because the history in the forums was there to read, search, etc... If I hadn't been able to read through that history, I would have never even thought about key compression, for example.
It also allows those of us who work in 3 or 4 different places to always be able to check the lists, etc...
I suppose if the mailing lists had a nice archive feature, then I'd be OK with it - but these conversations really should be captured to help the next batch of folks who decide to get involved...
Have you taken a look at the existing mail archives for the jdbm-general list?
I was thinking that we should move the developer discussion off of the open list, whether it goes to email or the "Developers Forum" is another thing.
I've just created two additional mailing lists:
According to SourceForge, it will take 6-24 Hours for the lists to be created.
The "jdbm-cvs" list will take a little more time before it gets fully functional. I need to add a few hooks in the CVSROOT area.
OK - that works for me. I like the forums because it allows me to easily work from multiple locations, but I can live with not having that type of access in exchange for being able to use my email rules, etc... to manage inbound posts.
Go for it.
