The outcome of our discussion is as follows:
...is now closed for external postings. Only those who are on this list
are allowed to post on xine-devel. However, the list archive is public. It
should be a good starting point for new developers.
Why? - to reduce traffic to the _relevant_ stuff for development
Possible problems? - Some of the list members might not use the same
address for posting that they are subscribed with. So if your mails to
xine-devel are rejected, although you are subscribed to the list, you can
1) re-subscribe yourself with the address you are posting from
2) ask me to change your subscription address
3) ask me to add another address that is allowed to post (this will be
necessary if you are posting from different locations, ie. at home/work)
... is our open discussion list. Anything that is not really fixed should
be discussed on this list. The rules are simple:
- Everybody is allowed to post to xine-devel.
- Every active developer is expected to be on this list.
- Topics on this list are just everything that has to do with xine,
including: new features, open bugs, installation problems, possible
improvements, patches from xine users, questions not answered
in the FAQ, ...
Why? - to allow anyone to participate.
Possible problems? - This _could_ become a high traffic list, so maybe we
will have to split it some day.
Okay, I hope the list issues are now fixed and we can all get some
productive work done!
