Re: XML-dev futures discussion
> A. Move the list, yes or no? I think reasonable opinions are > > A.1 I'm against moving it anywhere Moving the list will be very disruptive, so it should only be done if there's a *very* good reason and no plausible alternatives. With the exception of the broken (re-)subscription page, I think the most likely explanation for the problems people have been having are connectivity issues at the recipents end leading to bounces. If that's true, then moving the list probably won't make the problems go away. If this is the main motivation for wanting to move, then I'd recommend that people first check that they've got adequate DNS secondaries and backup MX records. Improved archives would be nice, but that's not dependent on moving the list. There are already third-party archives of xml-dev with different degrees of reliability, completeness and selections of features. If we need another one there's nothing to prevent it. > These are listed in the chronological order I became aware of them. > > B.1 Move xml-dev to ibiblio.org > B.3 Move xml-dev to the W3C Even if the number of posts to this list isn't particularly huge, there are a lot of subscribers. That means any alternative has to have a lot of bandwidth and a fair amount of horsepower. Both (1) and (3) fit the bill. Cheers, Miles
