It seems that emails to the packaging list are not being delivered. There have been release announcements for maintainers and packagers, which only have been delivered at the maintainers list. Both lists were on To:.
Missing February archive:
Emails with packaging on To:
Emails to the packaging list have not arrived for me as a subscriber, nor in the archive.
When emails to the packaging list are not delivered, it is likely that nobody builds and/or tests the packages and releases will be delayed.
Oups, my fault.
After a meeting in brno, we did create a packaging@gluster alias and I suspect this did interfer with the list (because the lists are on the same domain. I did remove it, and will see with the team to see what name they want.
I think we can use the packing@gluster for notifying people about the packages to be created. We want a email id that gluster ant can use for GitHub. We decided to use gluster ant as this script just needs a common user with GitHub credentials.
What is the difference between the email@example.com list? That list contains packagers from different distributions, they can act on the (early) release notifications and prepare packages before the announcement goes out to the other lists/tweets/...
So, since no one remember why, it might just have been me doing out of enthousiams during the hackfest, and I guess i can drop that alias since we have a list.
