[Laszlo-user] is this mailing list linked to the forum on openlaszlo.org ?

I think perhaps the problem is that a lot of developers, myself included are
busy enough that if we have to "go look" as opposed to "it shows up" then
even though the amount of effort isn't that much different the "go look"
will happen less frequently. I think the difference comes down to my email
client TELLS me I have new laszlo mail whereas I have to go look at the
forums on the chance there MIGHT be new mail there. Too bad they just
aren't linked so that you could use either mechanism.

I use the forums extensively,
More than the mailing list, in fact... as do many others. The only problem
with the forums is that there's a reasonable amount of white noise there.
Lot's of basic questions, and actually getting an informed reply on a more
complex topic is sometimes hit an miss.
(For example, I was trying the other day to find out how to inject things
into the class prototype of view so I could add stuff to the base
functionality of dynamically allocated classes without having to modify all
the components, the answer I got was <class name="x" extends="view">, glad
someone was at least trying to help, but not quite what I was after..... :)
My heuristic for posting seems to be to search in the forums first, post in
the forums second, and if I get no answers there (or don't figure it out
myself by then, which I normally have) then I'd post here as that's where it
seems the Laszlo guys hang out.
(Note: There does seem to be a big difference between how much the more
experienced and core Laszlo developers post on the mailing list as opposed
to checking the forums, maybe I'm wrong, but if not then it would probably
be good PR to have a look at the forums a little more often as it sometimes
seems as though the more experienced developers have abandoned it as a ghost
Anyway, my 2c worth.
