hmm, i don't have a problem with creating another mailing list, but i
would like to keep in mind:
- many questions that arise in the context of the rpi really are not
intrinsically related to the rpi. e.g. this thread "textual pd primer",
is really about running Pd on a headless machine, which is more
universal than an rpi.
- there are a lot of questions (e.g. how to open midi-files) on topics
that are not necessarily interesting for "pure Pd users"...but then,
what is this "pure" thing?
- in retrospect i consider it a mistake to have split the "pd-ot" list
from "pd-list": in 2012 we have a total of about 22 mails on that list
(so it's virtually unused), whereas there are still "[OT]" mails on
Pd-list, and i don't see a real reason why to ban the occassional OT
mail from it.
the rpi is a relatively new thing and people who recently received there
copy, start running Pd on it. hence we had a couple of rpi-related mails
in the last few weeks. i expect this to go back to "normal" pretty soon.
but again, if a sufficient number of people demand a mailinglist for
RPiD, i will happily create one.
