not make it appear."

Hi Jean-Francois,

well, but it's true - *someone* would need to carry the discussion
to the relevant list, see below. I would be very surprised if this
is different in any other free software project of this size.

To tell the truth, this is a shoking answer. Users may not wish to
register to some "strange" or hidden list for a one-shot message,
non-english speaking users might feel they are set aside. As the
users lists are frequently visited by members of TDF, it would seem
important these knowledgeable people report to the devs, if the devs
themselves don't lurk round here (which is a shame

If you want the devs to actually work on code, instead of reading
emails all day (mind that, typically, the core developer list has
some 1000+ postings alone per month), it has to be like this.
Someone would need to mine for the bits of developer-relevant
information among sometimes rather general discussions, distill it
down to actionable content, and bring it to the right place -
ux-advise for the question at hand.

If you're really passionate about this topic, it could be you -
isn't it always better to be part of the solution, rather than part
of the problem? ;)
