Lists: pgeu-general
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1


Apparently, when this list was created, there was some confusion as to what it 
was meant to be used for, vs what it is actually used for ...

Namely, it was thought that this list was meant to be for EU related 
discussions, akin to the various language lists that we have ... to give a more 
regional discussion for general PostgreSQL related discussions ...

Apparently, in reality, it is being used as a more 'general members' discussion 
board for PGEU itself ... not a problem, but does tend to collide with the 
'pgsql-* namespace has (until this group) been reserved for community support 
forums' ...

After some discussions on -core over the past few days, we'd like to suggest 
one of two possible solutions:

     1. rename list to pgeu-general, to match the existing pgeu-board list
     2. setup eu.postgresql.org as a domain, so that there is:
                 - board(at)eu(dot)postgresql(dot)org
                 - general(at)eu(dot)postgresql(dot)org

#1 is obviously the easier to implement, with the least impact, as pgeu-board 
won't have to be touched ...

In either case, an appropriate alias will be created to re-direct mail to the 
new list, so that member addressbooks won't suddenly be broken ...

This will result in pgsql-* once more being purely community + language 
specific support mailing lists ...

Thoughts / preferences?
