I know, and I don’t like the situation either. Some important mails are
only sent to one list, other discussions are cross-posted to more than
one list and every second mail I read I have read twice.

I consider pkg-fso to be strictly related to Debian _packaging_ issues.
In that sense, the mail was sent appropriately (as it was a request for
inclusion in Debian), but a separate release-announcement for the
general audience to smartphone-userland would have been good, I guess.

But I think this stuff will settle after a while. At least I don’t think
that adding or removing mailinglists, or putting up written (and soon
outdated) guidelines helps.

But yes, every user of Debian on the FreeRunner is invited to join
pkg-fso if they want to know about the issues we have, about new
developments etc.
