I might be acting a bit paranoid here but I am starting to feel that
users are getting confused between multiple forms of support available -
forums.debian.net and other mailing lists such as debian-user for example.
For example, recently a post is made to debian-user
and the same question is being asked in
This (same question posted at multiple places) could be a real problem
in the long run if the procedure is adopted by many. For example, a user
searching the archives in forums.debian.net might not find the answer
even though the question has already been address to...
What do you think?
If possible, please integrate mailing lists and forums and just keep one
of them so that users for sure will know where to post their questions.
I agree that both have some advantages over the other. But having just a
single place to post question is much much easier than 'deciding where
to post' or 'posting in multiple places'.
some thoughts of a paranoid :-)
