New list for users of KDE 3-alpha

Author: JT Smith

"Well, it's been a little over a year since the removal of the kde2-alpha list
that allowed users of what has since become kde 2, then 2.1, now 2.2 to
communicate, report bugs, and help each other work through problems. It was a
hell of a development cycle and that list helped a lot of additional people
test and provide input into the final product."

Hello,

I am sorry about the interuption.

Well, it's been a little over a year since the removal of the kde2-alpha list 
that allowed users of what has since become kde 2, then 2.1, now 2.2 to 
communicate, report bugs, and help each other work through problems. It was a 
hell of a development cycle and that list helped a lot of additional people 
test and provide input into the final product.

Now along comes the planning stages of KDE3. Already we are seeing some major 
enhancements to the HEAD branch of CVS. So, here we go again, it is time to 
create a new list!

I would like to announce the creation of the KDE3ALPHA mailing list and 
explain it's purpose:

Subscription is at: http://mail.kde.org/mailman/listinfo/kde3alpha or via 
email at:  kde3alpha-request@mail.kde.org

The kde3alpha list is created for the purpose of users (non-developer types) 
to communicate problems, sollutions, and bugs to each other and then in turn 
to developers who may be monitoring the list. The list is also being created 
with the hopes that a lot of the install/compile problems that end up in the 
bug database can be resolved on the list rather quickly between users. 

I would like to request that those people who build nightly or weekly builds 
of CVS HEAD branch and make them public consider joining this list so that 
you may answer questions regarding your builds. (You may also want to 
consider sending a note to the list telling where people can find your 
builds).

-Chris
