Yes, that's correct.


I received an automated email from groups.io about discuss@: "Subgroup
discuss@edk2.groups.io has been created". It states that discuss@ is a
subgroup of devel@. Does that mean that all emails sent to discuss@ are
automatically reflected to devel@ too?
No, it does not. I had to pick a "parent group", so I chose devel at the
time.

Also, I think you got that email because you're a moderator. Sorry for
the noise. Let me know if you're getting bombarded with emails as a
moderator.
No, it's fine; I appreciate the insight the meta-emails give me.



(I'm trying to gauge whether I should subscribe to discuss@ in addition
to my current devel@ subscription.)
For those who aren't really interested in general discussion, rest
assured that I'll forward any emails that I feel warrant devel
discussion to that mailing list.

Also, I've not seen any settings that allow automagic reflection, so it
is up to us as a community if we feel that cross posting is wise. I
think that most RFCs will want to cross post to the devel list, hence
the note about that.
I'll subscribe to discuss@.

Thanks!
Laszlo

Yes, this is correct. I had to pick a group to be the "parent group". I chose devel as it seemed like as good a choice as any. It also saves us from having a "main" group, which is confusing.

Also, for those interested, I am in the process of moving bugs over to groups.io soon. More on that shortly.

Cheers,
Stephano

I've added two mailing lists in hopes of making better use of Groups.io.
Several community members have commented to me that having 1 mailing
list (devel) for all conversations (and patch review) doesn't take
advantage of the Groups.io system and I agree. I met with the stewards
and they agreed that this change was acceptable.

There is now a list specifically for RFCs:

https://edk2.groups.io/g/rfc

Please cross post on the devel mailing list by adding `devel at
edk2.groups.io` to the CC field of the email. This way your RFC will get
the widest distribution.

Also, I've added a general discussion list:

https://edk2.groups.io/g/discuss

As we see new developers and users we want to be sure they have a place
to ask questions or make comments that are not development related.

Questions and comments are welcome.
