Just personal preference (of myself and others). 

While I wish that mailman would have some improvements, overall it's
suitable for our needs. It served us well. I probably just don't know
what I am missing out, but I still don't see it.

NetworkManager historically is both a GNOME and a freedesktop project
(we use gitlab.freedesktop.org, while applet and VPN plugins are on
gitlab.gnome.org). Having a freedesktop mailing list would fit the
project too. If it weren't for that, I wouldn't know where else to
migrate and would stronger consider discourse.

On a side note, it's not a big problem... But I don't understand the
urgency of sending an announcment and shutting the list down
(basically) immediately afterwards. A longer grace period would have
been better. I was ignorant of these plans. That ignorance is my fault,
but a simple email to the list would have helped.

that would be great. Thank you. I probably will come back to you about

As GNOME plans to leave the archive up as read-only, that's sufficient.
But I am worried that on a few years that will be shut down and the
history lost. If that ever happens, we should try to archive the
history somewhere. Would it be possible to get a dump of the entire


networkmanager-list mailing list
