I am sorry for failing to find time to comment on this earlier.

Since only a few people have casted an opinion, since there does not
appear to be a consensus on whether and how the lists could co-exist,
and since both lists are low-traffic (which is especially true of
xvendor), I've made the determination to put the xvendor list on hold,
as a "hot spare" of sorts.

I have updated the xvendor web page at:


to start with this text:

Note: the xvendor mailing list is currently unused, in favor of the
Distributions list.  However, this web page and the rest of the
"infrastructure" behind xvendor is kept around as a "hot spare".

"Distributions" is a hyperlink to:


I do agree with the suggestion that the current xvendor members
subscribe to Distributions.  I already did (last month, in fact).

Lucas - good luck with running the list (and the wiki)!
