I've been sending quite a bit of mail to a handful of people who are more
closely interested in the development, bugs, etc. of heartbeat than the
majority on the list. I'd say that more than half of the HA mail I send does
not go to the whole list. You haven't gotten much of it. My choosing to
subscribe you to this list was an attempt to rectify that situation, since I
value your input. I had these development and documentation aliases set up a
little differently on different machines, and it was a complete pain for me.
I haven't felt comfortable with running down bugs, clarifying documentation
for heartbeat on the main list. I had also gotten a little feedback that some
of the inquiries I've placed of that nature were off-topic. I do things like
copy answers to questions to the documenters, and I plan on using this list
for that. If it doesn't work out, then we'll do something else.
I'm open to the idea of not using this list, but it would increase the traffic
on the Linux-HA list quite a bit, especially as we pick up speed.
I still plan on using the main list as a place to ask about architecture,
features, etc. at the high level.
