Try to think out of the box. Once people see it's a Red Hat list, they
might get the impression that the discussion is Red Hat or - at the
most - Fedora related. The incentive to sign up might be pretty low for
people interested in other distros than Fedora.
Same holds true, of course, for other means of communication that /seem/
to favor one particular distro.
The prime objective at the moment should be to get the few
remaining users and developers of Linux/axp (and possibly other Alpha
based Open Source projects) to one place which isn't dependent on one
That's why alphalinux.org is a good starting point, that's why c.o.l.a.
isn't the worst suggestion either.
