myth developer vs myth user guidelines

Hey Isaac,
could you clarify how you would like to see posts divided between these
two lists? For instance talking about submitting a patch would
obviously be on the developer list, and discussion of xbox as a
frontend (ugh) would obviously be for the user list. But what about

help, I can't compile

help, could not find Xv Support

I think I found a bug but I'm not sure

does the AIW card work

help, I get shitty performance

how do I run frontend and backend on different machines

I get poor audio quality

I crash when I change channels

in other words, do you want to use the developer list as a place
strictly for discussion of coding, planning and the submission of
reproducible bugs (with a backtraces), or are you just trying to get
some of the blatant off topic stuff onto another list?

I think most people want to do the right thing and not piss anyone off,
but I think a lot of people think "could not find Xv Support" would be
a developer-list issue and a lot think it would be a user-list issue.


best,

cedar

Shouldn't be asked, it's in the docs =)

Could be either.

No rules or anything, really, I just want to get some of the really off-topic
stuff off the -dev list so that people who don't want to get so much mail
don't have to.

Since most 0.7 questions seem to fall into the "user" type questions,
would it be easier to discuss 0.8 (or the current cvs version) on the
-dev list and all other topics on the user list?
