Subject: [PATCH 3/3] doc: update wording to avoid "mailing list"
Date: Mon, 22 Apr 2019 01:49:06 +0000 [thread overview]
Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> (raw)
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.
