[llvm-dev] Suggestion to Stop Cross Posting Discussions

Dear All,

Within the past few months, there have been several discussions that 
relate to LLVM and its sub-projects (such as the discussions on moving 
to Git and the Code of Conduct).  To ensure that these discussions reach 
all community members, people have been cross-posting these messages to 
llvmdev, cfe-dev, and every other -dev you can think of.

This is becoming a headache for me (and possibly other mailing list 
admins) because replies are often sent to every list, but not all users 
are subscribed to every list.  As a result, we're moderating messages 
for people because they're subscribed to llvm-dev but not openmp-dev, or 
they are on cfe-dev but not llvm-dev, etc.

Can we keep these policy discussions on llvm-dev and just expect people 
to subscribe to llvm-dev if they want to particpate? Alternatively, 
could we create a new mailing list for these discussions?

I'd rather spend time moderating first-poster posts and discarding SPAM 
than ensuring that all of you can post to all the lists.
