I don't mind if people discuss editorial issues over there, nor is it a problem if they're getting clarification on a point there before taking it to the mailing list (especially since the list distribution is so broad). 

However, design decisions cannot happen over there. Any substantial discussions should be happening on this list, and I have been periodically prodding folks over there to that effect.

My biggest concern with this is that these side discussions will reduce the value of the issue database; the editors and I use it to track what needs doing, and if it becomes overloaded with noise, we can't do our jobs effectively.

If you see someone taking an issue's discussion in that direction, please help me by asking for discussion to be moved to the list (and NOT continuing it in the issue), or notifying me.
