And congrats on the provisioned project!

Hi all,

As you know the new project is provisioned.  With it, we have a new mail list (the wonderfully concise e4-dev@xxxxxxxxxxx).  Boris sent out a note on Oct 30 asking when people thought we should move over.  I've not seen any responses, which leads me to assume that nobody has a preference.  In discussing with McQ, we felt it was best for us all to just impose a deadline, otherwise we'll be on this list forever.

Thus an abitrary date of a week this Friday was picked as last day to use the old list.

1) If you've not already done so, please subscribe to e4-dev@xxxxxxxxxxx at

2) After 3:00 AM GMT-0 November 15 we will start using the new list (

3) From that point on, posts to the old list should only be met with, "Please repost to the new list".  I'd like to propose that we simply all unsubscribe to the old list.  I've logged a bug asking if the old list can be set to auto-reply telling people to post to the new list.  If it cannot, we can leave behind a few moderators to manually redirect the discussion.

Sorry if this all feels heavy handed, it just seemed self-organization wasn't happening and we needed a healthy push :)

Best Regards,

eclipse-incubator-e4-dev mailing list
