Alan Lloyd suggested disbanding a couple of lists and asked a question on financing: >>thesite - no messages since Feb 2006 >>steering - no messages since April 2005 marketing - no messages since March 2004 >>finance - no messages since October 2005 >>DesDev - no messages since June 2006 >>I suggest disbanding them and moving all these groups functionality back to theforum. Hi Alan, I suspect the lions share of any discussions that would have made use of those lists are currently taking place on the evolt IRC channel. In other words, I don't think its so much that those groups or that functionality is no longer needed or being addressed - I just think its being meted through a different medium today. I suspect you will hear more on that once the UK contingent 'wakes up'! ;-) Since I'm not actually doing any of that work myself I don't have any strong feelings on what vehicle should be used. If the folks doing the work are comfortable with IRC, then I'm okay with that. If they want it on a list so there is an archive, I'm okay with that too. >>On another note how is evolts finances? Who pays the server bill now? Hmmmm ... Last I heard I thought it was Dave Kaufman ... but I really haven't been keeping too close a track. I'm sure someone who knows for sure will jump in momentarily and set us straight. Being world-wide means our votes and discussions take a little longer to work their way through various time / space / tandoori zones. Lets be patient. HTH, RonL.
