The vger postmasters has created linux-kbuild on my request.
The old list at sourceforge had a few issues:
- it was subscriber-only
- it were relying on moderation
And I could see several mails did not get to the list lately
so I decided this was a good time for a new list.
I already requested marc.info to archieve the new list -
and I dunno where else the old list was archieved but we
ought to update.
I have no access to the list of subscribers on the old list
so people will have to subscribe manually.
How to subscribe:
send a mail to: majordomo@...
containing following text:
See also http://vger.kernel.org/vger-lists.html
Below is a patch to update MAINTAINERS in the kernel.
Note that I expect the list to cover both pure kbuild
but also kconfig stuff.

For me it is ok.
It was subscriber-only because this was a very low traffic
mailing list (but with daily spam). BTW, IIRC spam problem
began only when we moved to sf.net.
Anyway, from the beginning there was problem with moderation.
I think because this list is to much low-traffic, to high
spam/true message ratio and no more active moderators)
Considering the nearly inexistent spam in vger, I think it
is a good move.
