I'm thrilled about it. Creating new lists is cheap, a lot cheaper than asking people who want to discuss infrastructure tooling to wade through hundreds of administrative messages about ssh keys, email addresses, etc. > Are you sure that a mailing list is the most appropriate way of handling > requests?

We received one third-party CI request in 2 years, then we received 88 more in 6 months. Our current process is built around the old conditions. I don't know if the request list will continue indefinitely, but the announce list will. We definitely need a low-volume place to announce changes to third-party CI operators. -Jim _______________________________________________ OpenStack-dev mailing list OpenStackfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
