The question does raise two interesting points:

- what IS the "official" process for setting rules (presumably, since
the Debian project hosts these lists, and the servers they run on,
somebody, through some process, has the authority to set rules for the
lists, and post those rules to lists.debian.org) - but what are the
details?  anybody know?
I don't know, but the way this workes in other projects I've participated
these conventions are made and developed by their user members, which
includes all of us.

Right... but in this case, the Debian project is a pretty big one, with some formal governance, and the rules are written to govern a whole bunch of lists. So I kind of wonder if there's any formality somewhere along the chain, like there is with committing things to the Debian repos.

Just sort of curious at this point.



In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
