Re: [cdt-dev] Eclipse and Gtkmm

You get notifications that there are posts, you don’t get to read the posts until you go to the forum. At least that’s how it used to work and I didn’t like it much.


We probably need a beginners forum and an issues forum. And we probably need someone who has the time and energy to change things.

you can get an email for any new forum posts for CDT.  So I get all new ones in my Outlook.  The limitation is that you don't get replies to posts, unless you take part in the discussion.  So, I agree that it is not a perfect solution.


The flip side is that many of the posts on the forum are mis-configuration issues or some truly beginner posts.  I wouldn't want to see those on the cdt-dev list.  But more serious design questions are ok with me.

+1. Just had this discussion on twitter. I never go to the forums. I spend my day in Outlook and don’t have the time to go look at the forums. One could interpret me telling them to go to the forums and a lack of interest in their issues. That of course is not true and I’m happy to see them anywhere, but I’m more likely to see them if they show up in my Outlook.

You should probably post this question on CDT user's forum


Just out of interest how many CDT committers regularly look at the forums?  I know Andrew does and I think I've seen Toni post there. However in general forums seem to get little love.


I personally don't mind user questions on cdt-dev.  The list is pretty quiet, and it gives us an inkling of what people are trying to do as well as provide visibility of what issues people are seeing.  For frequently asked questions we can point users at the FAQ or documentation. Where there is no documentation, that's helpful too...


With mail filters it's pretty easy to ignore messages you don't want to reply to, but I don't think we should necessarily force people away just because the question isn't related to cdt internals.  There may be others in the community who do know and are willing to reply... 





I think
