I'm getting an increasing number of requests from people who "just want to
lurk" on the cygwin-developers mailing list.
Usually I send them a polite "sorry, that's not what the list is for" message
but I am getting worn down.
What do people think? Should I just open up the list to everyone who's
interested? My concern about doing this is that we will soon have a mirror
of the cygwin mailing list with people asking how to define aliases in bash.
There are at least two ways to do this:
1) Keep the mailing list status as is but allow "lurkers" on a case by case
2) Open up the mailing list entirely and get me out of the loop as far as
approvals are concerned.
