After the first proposal, there where some complaints (also from my
side). The concept of the mailing lists was refined then and some
details concerning the usage were laid out. Then there was no further
traffic concerning the new mailing lists.

Maybe we need a formal decision process? I don't think it should be a
"all agree or nothing changes" process. Any idea how this is handled in
other OS projects?

Again: which process? Where is the decision process for the RTEMS SC

Hm, at least now RTEMS doesn't do this either. bugzilla and version
control has separate lists.
