Now, y'all know this here LUNI list is still your first stop for Linux
questions, right? But sometimes the answer just isn't to be found here, and
yet you don't think it's really appropriate for, say, the linux kernel list.
Well, now there's the Linux-managers list:
Please peruse the list policy carefully: this list is fairly narrowly
targeted and has quite definite policies. Those who don't like a chatty
list would no doubt enjoy this one, but I think they all left for their own
private list quite a while back. So it goes.
Linux-managers mailing list FAQ excerpt:
Subject: 1.4) What should I keep in mind when posting to linuxmanagers?
o VERY IMPORTANT! Before you post, read the linuxmanagers list policy,
which is available at http://www.linuxmanagers.org
o Linux Managers is a huge unmoderated mailing list. Every message you
send will be passed on to every member of the list. This means you have
access to a much larger audience when you need help, but it also means
you can embarrass yourself in front of a huge number of people, most of
them professionals in your field, including colleagues, peers, and
possible future employers.
o Linux Managers is completely voluntary. Nobody is required to help you.
We are all cooperating by sharing our knowledge. Accept with grace
whatever responses you get, and don't hound people if they are helpful
or they won't be the next time.
o Linux Managers is not the list to use when you run out of other places
to post. Job postings, PC questions, X questions all have their own
lists and newsgroups. Use only the appropriate list or newsgroup for
such things, not Linux Managers. Inappropriate postings will only make
people annoyed at you.
o The more information you give about a problem, the easier it is for
others to help you. This doesn't mean you should uuencode the kernel
and post it, but you should include your OS version, your hardware, and
all relevant symptoms of your problem.
o When making a summary, please summarize as much as possible all the
answers you received, even the ones you didn't decide to follow: if you
receive several different suggestions, and decided on one, remember that
somebody else reading the summary may not find the suggestion you
followed to be the best one in his or her situation, and may benefit
from one of the suggestions you didn't choose.
o Be generous. If you have the information requested (especially if it is
obscure) then please respond. You may be the person requesting help
Now people have pondered this time and again (Who dies? Everyone dies)
We suspect that we're more than mere mortal remains (Oh, everyone dies)
Wise men and prophets they've all had their say
on the nature of our afterlives
But in case there's no beer there we'll have one more round (Oh everyone dies)
-- James Keelaghan in "Who Dies?", an uptempo song about mortality
