I guess the discussion of beta testing will be in announce still...

Damn!

Hi, I prefer to read everything in my news reader. Is it possible to add the following malling lists from http://lists.puremagic.com/ to gmane? ( http://gmane.org/subscribe.php ) - dmd-beta - dmd-concurrency - phobos - dmd-internals Some lists for D are already on gmane so it would be nice if they could all be there. Thanks, Guillaume

That would be cool. I prefer the news-reader over email for group communication.

Yes, just do it yourself: http://gmane.org/subscribe.php

Hi, I know I can do it myself but I wanted to be sure it was OK since, on gmane, it's written: "[...] ask the people on the mailing list first. Or at least the mailing list administrator. Then you fill out the subscription page." So is it OK for Brad and/or Walter? Thanks, Guillaume

I don't care.. other than that it's now gone full circle. I originally suggested that it just be in the .announce newsgroup.

Hi, I've subscribed the malling lists to gmane: just point your news reader to news.gmane.org and search for gmane.comp.lang.d. Note that not all groups are available since groups are created when the first message arrives from the mailing lists. Just check for new groups one in a while. Guillaume

Why are you creating these as mailing lists and not as news.digitalmars.com groups?

Because I expect it to be very low traffic, and I wouldn't expect people to constantly have to check the n.g. to see if the beta is available. It also gives feedback on who actually cares about the beta.

A decent NG client will do that for them and then pop up a notification window.
 It also gives feedback on who actually cares about the
 beta.
 

OTOH that's a valid point, up to a point. What about lurkers?

There's also the fact that there's a very small barrier to subscribing to a mailing list - only people who are particularly interested in it will bother. I've seen the mailing list approach used elsewhere because of this, and it works well.

Why would you put up a barrier for beta-testing? The concurrency mailing list I can understand (that's Andrei's thing).
