Description Mario Wenzel 2016-10-07 06:06:16 UTC
As discussed by the engagement team, we want a discussion list targeted at shell extension developers.

I don't know whether "shell-extensions" or "gnome-shell-extensions" is a better name for the list.
Comment 1 Andrea Veri 2016-10-07 12:21:52 UTC
Will go for shell-extensions-list, is that OK?
Comment 2 Andrea Veri 2016-10-07 12:24:11 UTC
Or if you feel the chosen name is not enough for external contributors to properly recognize it even gnome-shell-extensions-list would work for me :)
Comment 3 André Klapper 2016-10-07 12:53:54 UTC
If it's targeted at developers, would you like to express that somehow via its name or only via its description? Just wondering if you don't want to get too many "why this extension no work?" and " is borken!" emails.
Comment 4 Mario Wenzel 2016-10-07 13:02:38 UTC
I want to target extension developers and maintainers of extensions. So possibly mostly outside people, therefore "gnome" should be part of the list name.

andré is right as well, but gnome-shell-extensions-dev-list is quite a mouthful. 

So I'd rather live with the odd bug report (which might even be useful to find out about unmaintained extensions). So making contact with the devs saying "we've been contacted here, you might want to join this list."

Gnome-shell-extensions-list would be best then, I think.

List has been created and password e-mailed to you, Mario.
