Keith,

As of yesterday, the IPP mailing list has 303 subscribers, while
the IPPDEV list has only 38 subscribers.  Clearly these lists are
not duplicates of each other.


I'm not sure what you mean about "serious problems" in your above
statement.  Many, many folks monitor the IPP list for a number of
different reasons, not all having to do with the technology itself.
There are many people, for instance, who monitor the progress of
IPP to better understand and plan for product delivery schedules.
Most of us in the PWG welcome this kind of public observation, even
if it means some of those folks are *marketing* types.  ;-)


As the official list-keepers for the PWG, we here at Underscore
monitor all changes to all PWG-oriented mailing lists.  All too
many times we see folks unsubscribe from the IPP when a sudden
rash of messages are posted that deal with some very fine technical
point.  As Peter Zehler has pointed out in a previous message, we
wish to segregate finely detailed implementation discussions from
the higher-level aspects of IPP.


Hope this approach doesn't give you or the other Area Directors
substantial heartburn.
