Subject: [PATCH 3/3] doc: update wording to avoid "mailing list"
Date: Mon, 22 Apr 2019 01:49:06 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20190422014906.4253-4-e@80x24.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190422014906.4253-1-e@80x24.org>

The concept of a "mailing list" infers the existence of a
centralized subscriber list, and hurts forkability.  Mail
archives are easily forkable, subscriber lists are not.
