Thanks for setting this up Martin.

I just read the mailing list posts about the google+ group so didn't get 
time to read all of the google+ group itself yet.

Regarding the discussion about the differences between this mailing list 
and the new google plus group, apart from the proprietary issue about 
big brother, for me the key difference is that the Google group will 
allow lots of more trivial, specific or tentative discussions. It is not 
normal to tell the mailing list that I made this script or I wrote this 
blog post, but that is quite normal for a google group.

I like this kind of thing, but I understand the negative expressions. I 
think the answer is that if anything genuinely useful bubbles up out of 
the Google Plus group, it should be cross-posted here for the benefit of 
those who want a higher signal to noise ratio.

Best Wishes,
