Component/s: Process Doc
In a comment on http://java.net/jira/browse/JSR348-59 lightguard suggested:
"would it not make more sense (and to a point future proof) to drop the mailing list requirement and term it communication, or something similar? Especially in light of new group communication mediums such as the now defunct Google Wave project do we want to mandate that communication must happen through an email list?"
One way to deal with this suggestion would be to make Mailing List a defined term, and to define it generally in terms of the features such a communication mechanism should provide (allow public subscription, provide a searchable archive, etc.)
This would be somewhat similar to the suggestion that we define Issue Tracker.
