> Thanks for the lead. Are you suggesting all vpn4dc related discussion should move out of L3VPN mailing list onto DC mailing list? Do you know if the new DC list meant to be for all DC related discussion, or just a sub-set of topics? For example, VPN4DC, NVO3, SDN, SAMI, and so on.
If there is a more-specific forum for a given topic, I would suggest using it. For instance, if one wishes to discuss ARMD issues, I suggest using the armd@... mailing list. But there is much that is out of ARMD's scope, which might be more appropriate for discussion on dc@... instead.
I will leave it to L3VPN and L2VPN chairs to comment on what is in scope for those respective mailing lists.
