Good point that notification is the week point of this method of
communication. I think the reason for the wiki page was simply that it
was hard to follow the thread, especially that there was mentioning of
some off the list discussion and that at some point the title changed.
I was also not helping by repeatedly replying just to the author
omitting the list. I think I have this impulse already under control
and now that we have all the current context on the wiki we might
continue the discussion on the mailing list. Anyway, I am happy either
way, though wiki might have more latency obviously. I shall try to
follow irc too.
