First of all, we now have a separate development mailing list. We actually had such a list a long time ago, but it didn't work out well. We want to try it again because quite a few development issues were discussed in private which can't be an ideal solution for an open-source project. The general mailing list will from now on be used for our community and non-development discussions.
This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.haiku-os.org/news/2007-05-15_haiku_distribution_guidelines_released_and_development_mailing_list_created_updated/
