some words about mailing-list

I think he his absolutely right. Those who edited this mailing-ling had to
explain their goals at the very beginning and to SUGGEST to everybody to
participate or not. They had also to write the URL of this mailing-list in
order to let us know who else is included in it. Before answering I need to
see whom I am discussing with.

Nice to know. Late is better than never.

I think it is a very good initiative. The theme is interesting. But the
manner of mailing-list edition seems very strange. In August, when the most
of participants were surely absent, without any preliminary agreement or
explanation our mailing-boxes were overloaded by the flow of information
which could be much more clear if (I repeat) we were informed preliminary
on the goals of this action.
