Requested name of the mailing list (ending in @lists.wikimedia.org)
Reasoning/explanation of purpose
Transferring the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list maintenance from OKFN to Wikimedia's mailman. For the past 5+ years, the Open Knowledge Foundation has hosted the website and mailing list of the 1000+ members large OpenGLAM community, which discusses open access policies and practices in the cultural sector. (Membership of this community has a lot of overlap with the GLAM-Wiki community, because many institutions in this network use Wikimedia platforms to share their collections under free licenses.)
OKFN is now stepping down as maintainer of the OpenGLAM website and mailing list. Creative Commons has agreed to take over maintenance of the website (https://openglam.org/ - recently transferred), and I'm hereby requesting to transfer the mailing list hosting to Wikimedia servers, as Wikimedia's contribution to keep this community supported.
All 1000+ members of the 'old' OKFN-hosted list will be subscribed to the new Wikimedia-hosted one after notification of this change. They will have the opportunity to unsubscribe at transfer if they wish.
