> What about moving all subscriptions
We decided not to do this, and this is general vger.kernel.org
If we move the subscribers, this guarentees that half of the
list will bounce into postmaster's (read as: my) mailbox.
And if people don't learn how to subscribe to the new list
location by doing it themselves, they'll generally not be able
to unsubscribe from the new location which creates large levels
of frustration for the users and postmaster (read as: me).
It is also generally rude to subscribe someone to a site they
did not explicitly ask to be added to.
This is just reiterating what we discussed at the workshop,
it's a pain to keep stating this stuff over and over :-)
