Re: JavaMemoryModel: JMM discussions moving to

I strongly prefer the mailing list option because it can be
aggregrated. If we're not planning to use the discussion forum then I
recommend you shut it down.

(Btw, to aggregate postings from mailing lists, I recommend
subscribing with a gmail account.)

Any recommendations on project roles and watches? Are you expecting
some members of this list to request a role? Add this project to
their watch list? (Watches don't need approval, though, so there's
probably no need to discuss them.)
