Hey folks,

Anybody see any huge problems here?
Not huge, except that I find this proposal counterproductive to FE,

hide maintainers away and give people the impression of "These dumb nuts
are so stupid to do the work for you".

How is this promoting this idea?

* FE and FC should be treated as one entity, therefore the split you are
proposing renders fedora-extras list superfluous, because the topics to
be discussed on your future fedora-extras-list are already covered by

While there is agreement that FE and FC need to be moving closer together, we will not reach that goal overnight. In the meantime this is a slight improvement meant to better handle the rapid growth and traffic within Extras project.

fedora-extras-list is supposed to be a devel discussion list, anything else is off-topic. With less noise on the list, it will be easier to enforce this. fedora-list and other places are supposed to be for users.

* A significant amount of discussions on current fedora-extras is about
packaging - People wanting to get involved into Fedora should learn
about the issues on packaging as early as possible, before they try to
submit anything.

* As an FE maintainer, the number of mailing list I am subscribed to has
reached an extend I find non-acceptable.

With your split, I fear we will soon see the fedora-list trolls popping
up on fedora-extras and a further decrease in quality of packages,
because first-time SUBMITTERS had not been confronted with packaging
issues in advance.


I see no real difference in splitting the current traffic of fedora-extras-list into two lists. You have the option of filtering both lists into a single folder so you personally see no change.
