META: Subject Lines

Hi all,

I have received numerous complaints over the past few days in regards to
the subject lines of messages not matching the topics being
discussed. This has been a problem for a number of years, so a change has
been made in the List Guidelines to urge the changing of subject lines when
the topic strays. The new "rule" reads as follows:

Since the topic of discussion on the list can change constantly within a
single thread, we ask that the subject lines change accordingly. If you
feel that a thread is going off the original topic, that’s perfectly
fine…but please change the subject line to let all list readers know what
the topic has become.

This will be put in effect immediately.
