I vote to keep it open. Just because I don't have Q&A doesn't mean the content wouldn't be missed.

Oh BTW I recently went with the Linux Build... since I dumped Windows, Microsoft changes versions about as often as my boss changes his pants.

I'm making an executive decision here.

We will disable the list unless Roger wants to take over running it and
cleaning out the spam.
IF Nyquist hots up again we can re-open it.
ELSE Nyquist discussions can happen on audacity-devel.

Roger, let us know if you want to run the list.  Otherwise it will shut
down in about a week.
I don't think running it is that onerous, but it does take some time.

I shall look forward to that - it's one of the main reasons that I'm
subscribed to the RSS feed :)

The forum is certainly more convenient for images, and code snippets are
displayed without the formatting getting messed up.

I'm aware that there are pros and cons for both forums and mailing lists and
I'm not going to be drawn into a discussion of one vs the other, but it is
possibly not worth the overhead of maintaining the mailing list if it is not
used.

If there is a demand for it, we could enable an RSS feed (actually an "Atom"
feed) from the Nyquist forum. Most good e-mail clients support RSS / Atom
feeds, which may suit those that are used to receiving recent posts via
e-mail.

Most definitely. There's a lot of good information here.


Personally I'm quite happy for this mailing list to stay open (I don't
maintain it) but I was not sure if it was worth posting anything here as it
appeared to be dead (or close to death). From a quick scan of recent posts,
there appear to have been only about half a dozen people posting here in the
last couple of years.

True on both counts. I've no problem with running the list if
the list is actually used.

My much greater concern is that Nyquist discussions have
become isolated in the Forum (and I strongly suspect few
users of this list were aware of that).

I can see the sense that if significant improvements are
made to Audacity-Nyquist (see the "Wish List":
http://forum.audacityteam.org/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=38252 )

then developer-level discussions could take place on -devel
while all user-level discussions take place on the Forum.

That's only OK if all potential Nyquist developers are reading
the mailing list we decide on, which is probably not true at the
moment.

Hi Gale,
     Thanks for the link. I was not following the forum, and I think I
was not subscribed by email (when I clicked the subscribe link, which
was checked and made me think I was subscribed, the link changed to
"unsubscribe" which makes me think NOW I'm subscribed. We'll see what
happens).
     Given the forum, I think it's bad to have posts in two places and I
see no reason to keep audacity-nyquist alive.
     Thanks,
     Roger

Yes, you are now subscribed.

I agree the image for the link to subscribe looks too much like
a status indicator that you actually are subscribed. I'll see
if I can change it.

OK. We'll have to see what happens if there are major changes
to audacity-nyquist that need discussing. I know some developers
prefer e-mail communication to the Forum (and no I don't want
to ignite that debate now either).  :=)

If the list is closed, the old content would be archived.

You could then read the Nyquist board on the Forum to keep up
with current topics (where all the current discussions are taking
place):
http://forum.audacityteam.org/viewforum.php?f=39 .
