I discussed this with other members of the GTK+ team when the issue
first came up, and we decided that job postings to this list were, in
fact, appropriate. (With conventions like putting the location in the
subject line.)

gtk-list is meant to list for discussions about GTK+ that don't belong
on one of the other mailing lists. If job postings ended up being a
significant fraction of the posts on this list, then we would create a
separate gtk-jobs-list; but that is clearly not yet needed.

On the other hand, weekly reposting is almost certainly not
appropriate. The rate of turnover on subscriptions to this list is
just not that high.

I'm not sure what figure we should use... I think once every two
months is probably OK.
