[erlang-questions] new release announcements ... please read
Sun Sep 26 08:33:25 CEST 2010
I remember we discussed a list of "best practices" here on the mailing list at some point. This included how to tag announcements questions and discussions (such as [ANN] for announcements).
Unfortunately I think this just died out but it would be really nice to have an Best Practices page perhaps by extending the FAQ page which already exists?
Personally it would be easier to find the topics one think are interested if this was in place.
Any takers to start a thread and start creating these best practices?

Pleeeeeease start release announcements thusly:
<Name> is a <Description>
<Name> is available form <Url>
Fill in <Name> <Description> and <Url>
I've seen a releases of eres, yaws, ibrowse, announced
in the last couple of days. They did not have the above information.
I knew what *one* of these was.
Now I know that the person posing the article knows what the
thing is since they live breath and dream the code - but perhaps
everybody else on the planet doesn't know - so please tell them.
yaws - is a web server (I happened to know this)
I didn't know what the other two were without googling
You can't assume people who you've never met know what you're talking about.
