I know i don't post much as a windows user but Forum has many advantages over mailing list . It would save you guys work in many ways .
Many questions are asked over an over so a few sticky/FAQ would cover a lot of questions . 
With forum it is so much more organized , much easier to find answer or help others . Something mailing list is not good cause there no timeline to link up .

I was surprised when I first starting using DK that there was not a forum, for such a feature rich app .
Me as window user more than 50% of mailing don't really apply as most are other OS issues , but i end up reading some anyway cause you never know .

Maybe you should consider using filters and/or scoring in your workflow

if you are not already using it? Depending on how your mail client

I don't use a mail client. I have a dozen different Gmail accounts, each for a different purpose, its own filters and parameters.

You will only scan the ones being interesting as

defined by the rules. Actually, the only limit to what you can follow is

how restrictive you are - clearly, you need to know what you are

interested in for this to be effective, but this is the same for a forum.

I'm a member of I don't know how many forums, some I visit almost daily; others I go to when I need some information, receive a notification from a thread I subscribed too, or am asked by private message.

With mailing-lists it's either stop and go; and the search is not as easy and fructiful as in forums. Very often, I go to a forum and eventually don't ask any question because I find the problem is already answered; or I can use an existing thread to ask for some details.

On mailing-lists, it's always (for me, at least) easier and quicker to send a new message, that will generate more traffic even it the same questions has been answered several times.

The best I guess is to have a wiki where dedicated users (e.g. yourself

and Rinus :)) extract key information (e.g. emacs wiki) originating on

the lists.

I don't think I'm a dedicated user"; I only spend a lot of time (too much, in my opinion) to "extract" valuable information from the list. I'd rather spend more time investigating and actually using Digikam, with more benefits for me and people asking questions.
