Hi, folks. I understand that conventionally apache incubator projects don't have user lists. I suspect someone more familiar can give the whole story on that, but I assume the rationale is to be a bit cautious while the project matures. Notably, this is maturing in the Apache way, conduct and community.
That said, I was a bit alarmed to see a suggestion that all users should be routed to the dev list from github. https://github.com/alibaba/dubbo/issues/1393 The reason I was concerned was just the huge following dubbo has.. 2.7k watchers if not ignoring will receive this advice :) Perhaps prematurely, I'm worried that redirecting routine users to the dev list will be hard to undo once people establish a pattern. I feel we could stop that pattern up-front by having a user list and suggesting that instead. Please bear in mind that I don't have a lot of experience with dubbo and people communicating on the "wrong list" isn't necessarily bad. I might just be a bit scared due to the scale of the existing community here. Thoughts welcome, and if none, thanks for letting me express myself :) -A
