On IRC discussion there seemed to be general consensus that gNewSense

Also there are several unfortunately long threads going on about the
Lemote/MIPS development where instead of any list it's just a bunch of
individuals cc:ed; I want to avoid this for the majority of
conversations, as it's exclusionary, hard to reference, and makes it
harder for new people to get involved.

Would anyone have objections or alternative suggestions to the creation
of address@hidden

no objection or other naming, I can speak on behalf of me and anyone who wants me talk on their behalf :))))
We may also want to create something like address@hidden for
discussion of only builder [1,2]; it might be useful to not have
"gnewsense" in the name as builder may eventually also be used to create
distributions based on Debian GNU/Linux that are modified in the same
way gNewSense modifies Ubuntu GNU/Linux, and those distributions may not
be named "gNewSense" to avoid user confusion.
that would not be productive at this time, personally I would wait for the right "offtopic traffic" to move it we don't have it as yet, however it should most likely move to the -dev list for the time being

there are implications for the web site in this ;-)

For that matter builder was originally created with the intention that
it be used to create other Ubuntu derived distributions named something
other than gNewSense, so that list could be used for those if they
appear as well.

Disadvantage of this list would be possibly too much dilution / too many
mailing lists, so I would esp. like feedback on this one.

Also, would people find something like Gmane [3] but hosted on (perhaps as a replacement for the current forums) useful?
Free Software such as mail2forum [4] provides this functionality.
