While i agree that im not sure the issue he highlighted is the correct 
issue to rally around for this diverse topic, i *DO* agree that the list 
shouldnt be used for prolonged discussion over implementations, etc.

It should be used to highlight issues that pop up from time to time and 
to point to the organized and structured conversations to the resources 
(issue queues and group discussions) that are meant for that express 

I think that we can all agree that the decentralized nature of email 
make its use as a storage and organizational mechanism less than optimal 
to this task.

Im sure nobody meant to step on anyone else. Its Friday, lets cheer up, 
move the conversation on and develop a solution to the problem.
