Re: when is Flag Day for mailing lists?

Alrighty. Given feedback, and some more thought on the issue...

I'll be sending an email to s-f-c, saying "subscribe to private_at_s.a.o
NOW". There are only 50-some people on that list. They can switch.
Deal. (and I'm going to ask kfogel, etc to shut that sucker off
immediately)

svn_at_s.t.o subscribers should be switched over, since they certainly
won't get email at the tigris address. In fact, I think that I'll
switch that list over to "all messages subject to moderation", if I
can figure that out. If something *attempts* to come through, then I
can determine *why* and get it fixed.

dev, users, and announce will switch when we have established proper
website presences. It does not make sense to try and move
subscriptions around when we don't have proper backup on these kinds
of topics. A page on our new site explaining *what to do* for the
transition is optimal.

On Sunday, I'll extract my view of consensus (or not) on the website
setup, and make that happen. We can have an operational site as soon
as we'd like, from that point. We could then tell everyone, "December
1, 00:01 UTC, we will all move to the s.a.o mailing lists". We are
still TBD on the exact closure mechanics of the old lists, so a
(separate) thread on that would be Goodness. We have a bit of time.

Between now and then, you should be subscribed to the
subversion.apache.org lists. Traffic is occurring there, particularly
in reply to commits.

Cheers,
