[VOTE] Send edited messages to the mailinglist again?
A couple of days an unexpected (for me) behaviour of the forum software
crept into the limelight:
when writing a message directly on the forum, posting it, editing the
same message and save the edit, only the originally written message is
passed-through to the mailinglist, the edited portion never makes it to
list. The result is that community members which participate in
discussion mostly through the mailinglist (f.i. I do so for about 98% of
the time) don't see all of the input.
So I pinged Jeff about it who in turn pinged the jive people who came up
with the following answer:

or in other words: they might be able and willing to pass-on edited
messages if we want it (no guarantee, though).
What a long intro to a simple question: do we want that edited messages
are passed over to the mailinglist again?
From me it's a clear +1.
Usual voting procedures (which I must look up ).
Please participate to build up motivation for the Jive team!
