In case some of you wonder why the traffic on the Contributors Forum dropped down a bit lately, the reason is that the core developers are using an alternative channel for higher throughput (albeit more cryptic) messaging between them.
http://groups.google.com/group/mobicents-core/

If you feel like you are actively involved in the day to day development of Mobicents and you are not on the core list yet, go ahead and apply.

Majority of the design and development discussions will continue to be hosted on this forum. Summaries from core list discussions will also be posted here.

I agree with Fram and Ranga.
Have u notice how much the traffic on the forum was decreased lately?
I hope this will be a momentary status.

Traffic went down because we had a lot of issues on our heads, few nasty bugs - time consuming :/

Apologies, I should have been more precise. The core list is used for traffic between contributors who tend to change code on a daily basis. If you are not committing code at least once a week, the forums are the primary collaboration vehicle. If someone still feels left out, send me a private message.

This is a quite strange policy for an open source project that was mainly built by a community of developers. From my point of view hiding information inside a core developer forum is something against the concept of open source community and against the proejct itself.
I think that this kind of decision are against the potential growth of this project. Mobicents has already a developer forum and a user forum, it's really hard to understand why the project needs an exclusive forum for core development.

My suggestion is to have a forum where everybody can access to the community development information but only "core developers" can post messages. This will avoid out-of-topic traffic and will allow more partecipation of the community.

1. Using this forum for discussion of bugs is a bad idea. It generates too much traffic. I think the default forums or dev mailing list is better suited for bug reports.

2. I dont agree at all with creating an exclusive mailing list where discussions are in private. If Ivelin is concerned with the traffic on this list (a sentiment which I share), then the best thing to do is discuss bugs and development issues on a dev maling list for this project.

3. There is not much point in publicly announcing a private, by invitation only, mailing list. It can only alienate people who want to contribute to the best extent that their time will permit (and who may not be able to commit once a week).

I do agree with both ranga and fram and I guess now, there is not much to add except this :
The thing I don't get is why people interested in this private mailing list or forum or whatever are not allowed to see it ?
Personnally, even though I didn't commit in a while and have unfortunately not the time to commit, I'm still interested on the bugs discovered, how are they resolved, what was the different solutions, ...
I do agree that this is mainly for my personal culture but if I can share my experience on some problem encountered and have a solution for it, I'll be more than happy to share it and I don't understand why I couldn't do so
(I guess this comes down to the point 2 and 3 of ranga)
