Cross project mailing list



For lack of a better place I picked this list for this message.

During my time in Fedora I have tried to help improve communication and coordination between the various teams. I'm finding it increasingly cumbersome to do this with our current set-up and present mailing lists. Recent examples include the Release Readiness Meetings, Fedora 11 Retrospective, and the Zikula (CMS) project.

I'm not a big fan of creating "yet another mailing list" but I think in this case it makes sense. Previously I've sent announcements to fedora-advisory-board (f-a-b) and on other occasions created 8 separate emails to 8 separate lists so as not to upset those sensitive to cross-posting. I think f-a-b is the wrong place to make cross distro announcements since its purpose is for transparent board discussion and the overall direction of the project. On top of that the name doesn't make sense and is not self-descriptive.

What I'd like to do is create a mailing list for the purpose of cross project communication and coordination. The lead(s) from each team would be subscribed and anyone else interested release coordination and communication could also join. This would also be the mailing list where decisions about whether all the teams are ready for launching a particular test or final release would be captured.

I'm still looking for a good name for this mailing list--one that conveys its purpose. Right now I'm leaning towards "fedora-release" while also looking for any other good ideas out there.

Thanks,
John
