I don't see in what way a mailing list is superior to a newsgroup. But I
do see several advantages of a newsgroup:
* Clear thread structure (collapsable trees in standard news readers)
* No filtering on reader's side necessary
* Inappropriate messages can be removed after the fact (by a moderator)
* Own messages can be cacelled by sender in case of error
* Subscribing and unsubscribing is easier for a reader
A newsgroup is no more complicated to set up from a reader point of view
than mailing list access. No exotic software is needed, the newsgroup
can also be web interfaced.
Is there a specific reason why the fedoraproject chose to use a mailing
list instead of a newsgroup?
