Well, it seems to me that the action item I had from May was to explore
how much work (or of a hassle) this would be.

 From Florian's responses I would say - a good bit.

That and given the fact there really does not seem to be consensus on
this at the moment I propose we table the idea till the next meeting.

Right now there are other more pressing uses of our time and energies,

it requires a few hours of time for me, but that wouldn't be the problem. I am just curious to hear the reasons. We discussed rather lenghty on why to have "us". I see you feel a need, but how do we organize things? How can we avoid having splitted mailing lists? I don't want to end up with, based on the German example, having "de", "bavaria", "allgaeu" and "schwaben", where two of these will vanish some day, and all is just cluttered.

If there is a compelling reason, I am happy to do the change, but still I do not understand why "northamerican" is so much better than "us". Or, why did you then want to have a specific "us" list in the beginning?


I was wondering about using "NorthAmerican" [lower case for the letters is fine] but for some reason I was thinking we needed to have a two or three letter sub-domain listing for the list.

I do not know right now what the sub-domain for the NA pages would be on the CMS server that is being worked on. It would be nice, IMO, that the marketing@ would be using the same name as the NA web pages would be. It will be nice to not have to download and then upload the newest versions of the install files, to the testing site. I would be happy to take that site and have info about LibreOffice and screen shots, plus having links to the CMS server site for the project and info about getting on the marketing and users lists.

So would we be able to have the US Marketing list be the same "sub-domain" as the CMS server "sub-domain"?
