Re: E-mail Organization

I was about to suggest tags in subject lines as well. Easier to see in email listings than anything in the body.

Putting the tags in the subject line is inline with the style of what we currently do using [DISCUSS], [VOTE], [BEAM-YYY] so I like that. (I forgot that you can edit subject after the fact, thanks for pointing that out.)

The traditional thing to do is something like [SQL] or [Portability] in the subject. Cannot be added after the email has been sent, but your email client can probably do that part, right? If another user changes the subject line to add more tags in their reply, I think things like gmail will actually keep the thread intact and it will show up in searches too. Lots of lightweight options that don't require us to invent anything.

dev@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx gets a lot of e-mail. I was wondering how other Apache projects help their contributors focus on design/project discussions (such as SQL, SplittableDoFn, Portability, Samza, Flink, Testing, ...)?

I'm looking for a solution that allows people to tag a discussion with multiple topics, and that tags can be added after the e-mail has been sent as the discussion may cross multiple topics such as testing and SQL.

I was initially thinking that we could embed tags like "topic:sql" in the message body and if something was part of multiple tags it would be "topic:sql topic:testing" to make it easy

What do you think?
