Elang discussions? - a call for a new format

Hi,
I place my vote for *not* moving away from the erlang-questions
list. After all, the group is still (relative) small and most of us our
interested in at least briefly look at what everone else writes
on any Erlang related topic.

If we take the long threads away from here, this place runs a
risk of becoming very silent. People who are not programmers or just
a little interested in Erlang will not go through the trouble of
watching a newsgroup too. Even if they simply delete all emails
they get from the list for the moment, they get a true feeling
for the activity in the community. And that might incourage them to
try Erlang seriously when the time permits or the right opportunity
comes later.

Best Regards,
Lennart
