SubjectOpinions on moving Linux InfiniBand/RDMA mailing list to vger?
Lately, I've had a few emails that I thought would have been of interest
to both lkml and also to I've held back
on cross-posting them because I know that general@ is subscribers-only,
and the bounce messages are quite annoying to replies coming from lkml.

The general@ list is subscribers-only because the
sysadmin team is already overworked without trying to keep an open list
spam free. (I say that with no intention to criticize the admins -- they do a terrific job of keeping things
running with the limited resources available; it's more a testament to
how impressive the vger mailing list admins are)

I've also noticed one or two messages about the possibility of moving
another moderated list to vger. Certainly I prefer open lists that
don't require subscriptions to post.

So with that background, what would people think about creating an open
vger list (say, to carry the discussion
currently on (The transition plan would
probably be to keep the general@ list for a month or two, with frequent
announcements of the new list, until archives etc. have caught up with
the switch)
