Description zr1hpc 2005-02-10 18:30:53 UTC
Please investigate either barring people who are mot subscribed tio the Users
list from postings queries via the web interface or alternatively do not post
the moderators comments regarding replies to that original query to both the
enquirer and the list, ie I ask about OOo and SSH but am unsubscribed at the
time. Many folk reply and give me a solution but I do not see the replies until
a moderator sends them to me. The result is that members of the Users mailing
list receive the answer twice ie the first time they are posted nad the 2nd
trime the moderator FWDs them to the unsubbed user ie "As you are not subscribed
you may not have seen:".

As people hear more and more about OOo so the duplicate replies increase,
especially since some of the posters do not eventually subscribe to the Users list.

As a second alternative, rather change the web page to inform them that unless
they are subscribed, they might recvive an answer, if the moderator picks up tey
are unsubscribed.

at present we accept posts from non-subscribers for many lists.  Given the options you offer, I'll chose 
the last; it's a good one, and I thought we had something like that there, once.

The issue is obsolete. At Apache the mailing list structure is completely different.
