I see an overwhelming amount of posts on the new list which where somehow missed on -dev, though. As a general note that you might not know, from Germany at least and over my internet account and being not a logged in user i find that github very often fails to generate commit data or cuts directory listings. At least there are no advertisings which consume multiple CPUs for who-knows-what. |So I'm not convinced we need two free-form discussion lists, but |concur that if it is discussion one wants, then email clearly |superior to Github issue tracking. The key question is whether |openssl-users suffices to meet that need. Oh, -dev was a terribly noisy list. So: ch-ch-ch-ch-changes (turn and face the strange). Congratulations for the price you have won. Especially so in respect to, brave new world!, having to go over browser based issue tracker interfaces.
