Firstly LUV is NOT a sub-committee of Linux Australia (we had a vote on this
matter). So this isn't a matter for Linux Australia. I was in favor of
making LUV a sub-committee of LA and I was also in favor of using the LA list
server for the LUV lists. My side lost the vote on both those issues.
So anyone who has issues with the LUV lists can take them up with the LUV
In regard to long threads, that has more to do with the people involved than
discussing technology vs politics. In LUV history consider discussions of the
merits of SCSI vs IDE. That became a discussion of SATA vs SAS - technology
changed but the debate didn't.
