Differentiate between dhis2_users & dhis2_devs

Team - its becoming hard to follow e-mail’s sent especially genuine questions from fellow members because some people send questions to dhis2_devs & others send to dhis2_users. Probably list admins need to clarify for me the difference because the very many noreply e-mails all come through dhis2_devs - which is OK with me because most of them are Revisions on the branches. These revisions are too many (which is fine, because they are meant to come as and when a revision is made) and some people send genuine questions in between them - rendering some questions skip the user!

Can we somehow have it in away that the questions for support go to a particular list because blocking/denying e-mails from dhis2_devs makes someone miss some of the questions coming in through that list. Don’t you (list admins) think it will be nice to set a specific list for the support questions and not mix them up?

Thanks Martin,

This users list is meant mainly for questions related to the usage,
setup or implementation of DHIS 2. I think this also includes
discussion of bugs.

The developer mailing list is meant for requests and discussion around
new features - but I certainly see how many people on the users list
would also be interested in that topic, at least at a non-technical
level. It seems to me that we should try to have most general
discussion on the users list, and confine the developer list to mostly
technical details ( including the revision messages).

Hi Martin,

problem is that Launchpad is sending out commit mails on the default
team list. Of course we can make another list but it is also not ideal
to have too many of these things. If you are using an email client
which supports filters you can easily:

- filter out these mails by looking for mails with
"noreply@launchpad.net" as sender
- apply a label to them
- archive them directly

Then these emails will not spam your inbox and you can later review
them by going back to your label.

Lars

Knut + Lars - thanks, just felt like some ordering makes the presentation easy and better.
