Mailing list for Dillo developers

[Archives] [Archives '99-'02] [Subscribe] [Search]

 

Please read carefully before posting:

This mailing list has a long tradition of polite, respectful, technically skilled and cooperative email interchange, and, we love it that way!

Back in the old days when I was at the university, a memorable teacher told us that the toughest problem of gathering a working team of highly skilled to brilliant-considered individuals was that those guy's egos were bigger than a whole cathedral, and that they would avoid cooperating with each other in the pursuit of demonstrating that they were the best overall, and that they could undertake the whole task without the aid of anyone!

He was right...

I had come to observe that really brilliant or knowledgeable people (up to geniuses), don't behave that way. They know what they're worth, and thus doesn't have to demonstrate anything.

Even more, the latter ones are the most cooperative, encouraging and open to share their valuable knowledge, when it comes to help their colleagues to improve their skills.

The excellent news is that being a genius is not a requirement for adopting that working spirit; and so we did!

Tips:

Release announcements
If you just want notification of releases, go to freecode's dillo page and click the "follow" button. This will require a freecode account.
Low traffic
We have a lot of subscribers, but the traffic is low. I believe that's one of the main reasons for that! The other one is that having to be concise, tends to improve the quality of the post.
Being concise
Please don't brainstorm to the list. Document yourself and try to sort your mind before you let others know what you think.
Positive feedback
Thanks-for posts are very welcomed. I receive a lot of them, and sometimes I wish they'd be sent directly to the mailing list with a view to let every developer enjoy his share.
Where to send patches
You can send them to me. If your patch is small and you need to share it for advice, send it to the mailing list. If it's big, let the mailing list know and either set an URL with it, or email directly to interested people.
Offensive posts
You're strongly encouraged NOT to answer any unpolite or unrespectful post. This silent exclusion will gently invite the poster to reconsider his writings or leave the list.
