Description:
This is SQL, and administrator on the English Wikipedia.

I would like to request a new mailman list for the English Wikipedia, among other things, to bring our account request process more in line with our privacy policy, and to enhance the privacy of our users.

I have proposed this on-wiki, and, it has strong support thusfar. (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Request_an_account#Replacing_this_page_with_a_mailing_list ). I believe that there is now consensus to make this change (discussion has pretty well died off as well at this point).

We would like the new mailman list to be named "accounts-en-l", if possible, unless there's a stricter naming scheme that no one thought about :)

Thank you for your time,

SQL

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
