They also have a usb list but they are both very low volume.  For now
we should have just the driver's list, with usb being on-topic there.

But it's also very low volume, and probably a lot of us are porting legacy apps to Cocoa, so I'm torn between having a separate group, or just asking Carbon questions in the Cocaa list, as many questions will be of the form "How do I translate this Carbon feature to Cocoa".

Sounds like just using the cocoa list would be better, since it would make such questions more likely to reach someone who knows the answer.
If there end up being a significant number of posts about Carbon itself, it’s no problem to set up a list for it.

RE: New lists

For those of us still working in Carbon, it's nice to have a place to ask questions.

But it's also very low volume, and probably a lot of us are porting legacy apps to Cocoa, so I'm torn between having a separate group, or just asking Carbon questions in the Cocaa list, as many questions will be of the form "How do I translate this Carbon feature to Cocoa".

Hi everyone! Thanks for joining.

apple-dev is intended to be a replacement for all the @lists.apple.com lists, of which there are/were many. Creating new sub-groups on groups.io is easy, but rather than make 100 of them up front, I just created the main two that I myself use (cocoa and xcode) and will create others on demand. So please reply on this thread if there’s a list you’d like.

(They don’t have to be replacements of the old lists, either. Apple seems to have stopped creating lists years ago. So for example I could see a demand for a game development list focused on SpriteKit, SceneKit, etc.)
