Hi Thorsten,

thanks for your answer.

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.


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.

I can understand that.

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.

The place where to bring questions to the devs has to be a visible and accessible place.

Visible: the us list is completely hidden (at least it was to me until Cedric brought it to my attention). From what I can see, it is also hidden to most of the public lists members.

Accessible: I know of plenty who don't speak or read English. Thus, even if they'd know about ux, they couldn't express themselves.

I guess there's some work to be done to resolve those two points.

BTW, what if many people jump in the ux list and post thousands of messages? ;)

If you're really passionate about this topic, it could be you -

Well, I could do it, yes. In fact, as you might have seen, I did for the first time a few hours ago. I can say that the latest answer my message received is not that encouraging (in short: do it yourself. Doh).

isn't it always better to be part of the solution, rather than part
of the problem? ;)


Thanks for your answer. All the best,
