fedora-list guidelines



Hi,

I am new to this list. the reason I'm posting here is the following:

At the 'fedora-list' there has been a recent community effort to
formulate a document with the "guidelines" for posting to that list.
After a number of drafts and discussions, this document has reached a
more mature form, and has been put in the form of a web page:

Original:  http://www-personal.ksu.edu/~seabra/linux/FedoraRules.html
Mirror:     http://www.cwelug.org/fedora/FedoraRules.html

It is already considered "official", in the sense that it grew from
discussions in the list that have reached a consunsus. As a next step,
we would like to make this document know for most users of the list.
For this, the suggestions we have are:

1. Monthly reminder: having a link or a text-only 
    version of this document sent automatically 
    monthly to all subscribers;

2. Part of a welcoming message: Either include a 
    link in the welcoming message, or send a separate 
    e-mail with the text-only version of the document
    to every new subscriber;

3. Linked to sign-up page: maybe there could be a link 
    in the sign in page?

4. Link in the sugnature. (in **MY** opinion, this would
    likely be the most effective of all.) It would help if
    there could be a link in the signature added by RedHat
    to all messages  distributed. The signature could then
    look something like:
    --**
    fedora-list mailing list 
    fedora-list redhat com
    To unsubscribe: http://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-list
    Before posting to this list, please check  << link here >>

4. Submission to Fedora-docs: That last suggestion was made 
   to make this documet more "official".

So, that's where we are now. Please consider this message as a
"submission" Unless there's another way to do it). We would really
appreciate if the people responsibe could take a look at the page and
consider accepting it, if it seems appropriate.

Thank you very much,
