Subject: Mentor hat and advice

Hi folks

We should be celebrating our first release, it is getting close and we have
the IPMC votes we need, so now we just need to avoid -1 (binding)..

One of our core developers wrote to me privately asking for advice, instead
of responding privately I respond in here, so it becomes public knowledge.

Wearing my Mentor hat.

I do not want to interfere in any way with who mails what to whom, but at
least one core developer has been offended by a private (offlist) email and
asked me how to handle it.

As mentor, my recommendation is, that if you recieve private emails about
corinthia that you
do not want, reply politely to the email, asking the sender to direct the
email to one of our
mailing lists (Motto: If it did not happen on a mailing list, it did not

You should not send the email to any ML because it was  sent to you in
private, if you
want to prevent further private emails you can write, that emails will in
the future be
forwarded to e.g. private@, that way the sender has received a fair warning.

REMARK, the above is only an advice I give because I was asked, this is not
something you
need to follow in any way.

jan I.

Ps. Could this day please be a day where we think positive.
