|[platform-ui-dev] appropriate content for mail list|
The mail list is intended as a developer resource for those who are working on that subproject. It is a forum for committers and those who are participating in the development of that component. Dave is correct, "How to" type questions should appear on the newsgroup so that the community may participate. See the following at http://www.eclipse.org/mail/index.html: "These lists are intended for questions and issues related to the development and implementation of the actual subproject and component code. The development mailing lists are the way design and implementation issues are discussed and decisions voted on by the committers. Bug reports should be logged to the bug database. Please don't mail bug reports into the developer mailing lists."

On Nov 15 and 16th two questions were posted in an email to this mailing list. The first concerned the tasks view, as shown below, and the second concerned view contribution to menus. Normally questions like these would be posted to the Eclipse news group, and the community at large would answer them. This is probably a good way to go, because it leads to general spread of knowledge outside those who are signed onto the ui mailing list. I object to the use of this mailing list as a pseudo news group with direct access to developer mind space. It is a waste of my time to get spammed with questions.
