as far as I remember this was discussed over a year ago and the majority
preferred having just one list. As was brought up several times lately
this is not how the community is included in decision making in my
opinion. At least a prior notice would have been nice.

So thanks to no prior announcement, people now missed some mails, all
subscribers wanting Gerrit messages have to subscribe again and set up
their filters which the opponents to one list did not want to do.

One question remains what to do with replies to Gerrit messages. Some
people do not use Gerrit for whatever reasons but do get Gerrit messages
and want to reply per email for whatever reason. Like bringing an issues
to broader attention or discussion. On what list should that happen? Or
should <coreboot at coreboot.org> just be added to CC?
