Hi Torben,
I'm tentatively -1 on the idea but willing to discuss.

The proposal you're citing is 2.5 years old and the mailing list trouble we
have had in the past week is
been the only really serious issue we have had since, as far as I remember.

Migrating the lists to OSGeo will generate a very significant disturbance
again, but one of our own making,
we'll probably lose all subscribers* and create two places that people have
to search into before posting a request.

I'd be willing to consider the idea again if we have another SF issue in
the short term, but besides that,
I believe we can tolerate one trouble in 2.5 years, I doubt OSGeo would be
able to significantly
outperform that.

Speaking of which, we keep on having problems with the OSGeo hosted maven
my colleagues report slowness and occasional inability to connect, I
normally dodge the problem
by building from sources my snapshot and using -nsu in all builds. Now, I
understand we have not
seen similar issues on the mailing list, but it gives the impression SAC is
a bit short handed
(looking at our community, everybody seems to be busy up to their eyeballs
too, so don't think we
can offer help there).


* even assuming SF will give us the list of subscribers, which they might
not due to privacy,
I don't think we can force subscribe anyone to a new list server hosted by
a different
organization... so we'd likely have to start from scratch
