[maemo-developers] [maemo-devel] List emails subject prefix

   Thanks for the apology.  I was taken aback by your initial response and was trying to figure out how best to respond.  I did realize that my sarcasm might have been missed.

   I have been very concerned about a general tenor of this list.  It seems like some are suggesting that if you haven't been on the list long enough, if you don't use the right email client, and several other comments I've heard recently, then you aren't good enough to be on this list.  Instead, we need to be welcoming old and new, people using pine, elm, modest, Outlook or whatever email client.  

   Likewise, I would like to see more discussion about how we can all work together to make sure that this list, the wiki, the repositories, and other tools are the best possible so that we can get as many developers working together to make great apps for Maemo.

   I appreciate your concern for this list and your suggestion on something that would make it more helpful to some users.

Sorry Aldon, I must apologise.  I was amazed at that response at first
but having read it back I noted the sarcasm.
Obviously a little too subtle for me in my sleep deprived state! Sorry
for the over reaction.
