that's a bit uncalled for... I have checked and out of the 8 mailing
lists I get from ubuntu.com none use that convention. Then I
randomly selected 13 other lists ubuntu.com hosts, and only 5 out of
13 used that convention. So obviously not of all of the open-source
world obligatory follow this approach.
On a personal note, I really don't care one way or the other. I
filter all my mailing lists in their own little folder, so to have the
special prefix or not in the subject line of individual emails doesn't
matter for me.
Like I wrote earlier, I'm willing to to the change if there seems to
be a large consensus that it is something we want as a group. But I
see a evenly split opinion in the replies until now, as I have seen in
the past when this topic has arose. So in that split situation I would
be tempted to propose to follow the approach the majority of the
ubuntu mailing lists adopt, and not add a prefix to the subject line.
And continue the business as usual method for our little corner of the
open source world.
