Hi all,

Recently I've been wondering what should happen to
ubuntu-motu-mentors at lists.ubuntu.com The list was never very high
volume, but recently it has seen almost no activity. Attached is a
histogram of mailinglist volume over time for ubuntu-motu-mentors. It
seems that many Ubuntu Developers don't even know that it still exists
anymore. This leads to a very poor experience for those aspiring
developers that do find their way there. Questions go unanswered for
long periods of time or forgotten all together.

I know that there will be some discussion on developer mentoring at
UDS. [1] Unless a specific plan emerges to revive the
ubuntu-motu-mentors list, I propose that we ask to have
ubuntu-motu-mentors redirect permanently to the regular ubuntu-motu
list. The latter has more subscribers so will more likely provide a
better experience for potential developers. It has also been fairly
low volume recently [2], so I don't think the combined volume will be
a problem for subscribers.
