[ADMIN] [ANNOUNCE] This list

I've added an proposal to the Ubuntu Community Council agenda to shut
the sounder list down.

When the Ubuntu project was started, the sounder list was a place
where new ideas and fun things like 'Ubuntu sightings' were discussed
- it was the first mailing list you would read in the mornings.
However nowadays I don't believe this list is serving its purpose &
isn't helpful to the project. It only serves to allow a small set of
people to argue about subjects very tenuously related to Ubuntu, or
unrelated at all. The Ubuntu project doesn't need this list anymore.

If anyone has an opinion / counter proposal I would recommend they
turn up to the next CC meeting where it can be discussed.

The next CC meeting is due to be on the 17th April 2011 at 11:00 UTC
and will be held in #ubuntu-meeting on freenode IRC. I'll send a
reminder nearer the time.


It can of course also be discussed on this list, and at the meeting
I'll do my best to objectively pull together opinions and proposals
from those not present.
