Event Timeline

Hi John; apologies it's taken this long for anyone to get back to you about this mailing list.

Before I create the list, I require the following information from you:

  1. Are the list archives supposed to be public or private?
  2. Should subscription to the list require admin approval or subscriber confirmation only?

I strongly suggest (1) public, (2) subscriber confirmation only unless the list must be private for some reason. I would also suggest perhaps shortening the name of the list as it's a bit long, but I guess I can deal with it being what it is if it works for you.

Please let me know your answers to (1) and (2) and I'll try to attend to your request as soon as I can, perhaps even tomorrow evening (26 May).

I'm just leaving this here to say that this request is blocked on the creators' side and that I should be able to attend to it within 48 (likely 24) hours of receiving a response to the questions I asked immediately above.

Hi tomasz,

Thank you for getting back to me about this!

(1) public, (2) subscriber confirmation only sounds suitable.

If the name is okay, please go ahead and create it. I haven't been able to come up with a shorter name I'm afraid.


tomasz claimed this task.

The list has now been created, and I configured it to have public archives, with new list subscribers added upon (their) confirmation.

You can configure the rest of the settings, including list description and a terse identifying phrase at the following web page:

The list will also be available in the e-mail-to-news gateway as

Please list and describe your mailing list at the appropriate section of the mailing list overview page on Meta.

I just sent the admin password to the two e-mail addresses given above, and made them list administrators.

This request is now closed; enjoy your new mailing list!

The list is listed on the Meta page here.
