Enhance: optional notes field for mailing lists
It might be useful to allow installations to provide an optional notes
field for mailing lists.
In particular, many of the ASF lists have changed names, so the complete
history may be spread across several mailing lists. It would be useful to be
able to document this somehow.
There would certainly be space for an Info icon on the screen, but for list
name changes it would be useful to have the text on the screen itself; if there
is more info than would fit nicely on the screen the text could be a link to
the full description.
An alternative for the name changes would be to include backwards and
forwards links (as relevant) in the Archive: menu. i.e. if the current list is
a continuation of a previous list, then add a link to the previous incarnation
at the end of the list. And vice versa.
The notes field could also be used to document the purpose of the list, as
this is not always clear from the name. For example, the dev@community ASF list
often gets postings which would be better directed elsewhere.
If your project is set up for it, you can reply to this email and have your
reply appear on GitHub as well. If your project does not have this feature
enabled and wishes so, or if the feature is enabled but not working, please
contact infrastructure at infrastruct...@apache.org or file a JIRA ticket
