      You know how sometimes you send an email and then slap yourself on the forehead and wish there was a button to stop an email?
      I realized too late that my message below was a bit confusing.
      The link is to the ysearchboss email that was sent by Ashim, not a blog post.
      The point is that we should maintain a single point of reference to collect and answer these questions. You could either go to that url or hit reply to Ashim's earlier message.
      I personally think this will make it easier to know what are the main concerns for BOSS developers.

      The best place to archive your questions and concerns is this blog post on
      the YDN network: Announcement: "Microsoft, Yahoo! Change Search Landscape"
      http://tech. groups.yahoo. com/group/ ysearchboss/ message/2018

      This will be easier than parsing through threaded messages in the mailing
