Right! I have followed this discussion with interest and can see both sides of the issue. But I lean toward thinking that circ people will be more apt to pay attention to a listserv that serves only circ people.

I think she did an excellent job of articulating the basic arguments for both sides. I agree that we need some kind of process for requesting new lists or guidelines about when a new list is warranted. I would be happy to help come up with some guidelines after the Sitka upgrade to 2.12 is complete (end of May). I think that the debian requirements are a great place to start. <https://www.debian.org/MailingLists/HOWTO_start_list> https://www.debian.org/MailingLists/HOWTO_start_list Currently the vote is 5/3 in favour of a new list. I am happy to wait until May 5th to see if there is any further discussion on this topic. Since this is the third time over the years that an Acquisitions specific list has been requested I strongly feel that we should go ahead and create the new list.
