I've brought this up today on IRC. My main argument is that the
coreboot mailing list should be a place for discussion, for newcomers
asking for help, talking about the future of the project, etc.
Definitely more for discussion and less for patch review.
We have gerrit for patch review. Some (actually, a lot) of people
prefer to do their reviews by replying to the gerrit emails. It's
awesome to have this option. The more the merrier, right? Right.
Back in the days -- I mean waaaay back, think patchwork and svn --
doing patch review on the list, with some deficiencies, worked fine.
We switched to git and gerrit. We eventually got to the problem that
gerrit traffic accounts for most of the traffic on the mailing list.
It makes the list irritatingly clobbered for some people, to the point
they just stop using it.
The argument from the "I like gerrit in the mailinglist" camp is
"setting up your own filter to keep out gerrit message is easy". We
can't really force people to do this. They (myself included) would
rather stoThp using the mailing list.
All I've said and refuted above are arguments and rants we like to use
to tease each other. I strongly believe that it makes sense, now more
than ever, to separate development and discussion traffic into two
separate lists. I hope you all agree.
