I'm new to public mailing lists, other than those at my workplace. I was browsing the
pgf-users mailing list and I find that many of the questions come from end-users. Such questions perfectly fit the StackExchange format.
I was wondering if anybody ever sent out invitations to join TeX StackExchange. I don't know what the social implications will be to the traditional mailing list community. I mean, why would I opt for the mailing list when there is StackExchange which is suitable for end-user questions?
Well, to start off, I think the mailing list is still a good tool for focused developer groups.
