List Name: mozilla.apis List Admin: firstname.lastname@example.org Short Description: A uniform interface of mozilla's platform APIs Long Description: An initiative to provide a centralised definition of the APIs that mozilla exposes to its users. This includes services such as Treeherder, TaskCluster, Bugzilla, RelEngAPI, and others. The aim of this project is to provide a service where API schemas can be submitted, that will enable teams to develop APIs independently, yet have them registered centrally in a global catalogue. Ultimately it is our desire to be able to auto-generate a command line interface and language libraries based on the ingested schemas, such that all tools can benefit from a shared interface, be it command line, online docs, or through language-specific client libraries.

The new list appears as "mozilla-apis" in https://lists.mozilla.org/listinfo but other lists on the page are not prefixed "mozilla-" - should this just be "apis" instead for consistency?

I don't know how that page is created. I've followed standard procedures here so , no clue.
Usul: something does seem to have gone wrong here if the list name is not of the standard form (i.e. without the "mozilla")? Can we see these procedures you are following? I suspect if the list is not correctly named, some of the plumbing which connects up the Google Group, list and newsgroup will not work... Gerv
Ludo is on paternity leave. The procedure is at https://mana.mozilla.org/wiki/display/SYSADMIN/Newsgroups The list and newsgroup are connected by configuration on the mailman server which should have nothing to do with the name of the mailman list itself. It's just a convention. We can rename the mailman list (actually remove the old list and create a new one. It's not possible to simply rename a mailman list) if it's a problem.
Congratulations, Ludo! Yes, please fix the list name, because the autogenerated HTML here: https://www.mozilla.org/about/forums/ relies on the standard relationship between the names of all the components, so if you don't fix, it the "mailing list" link will be wrong. There have been no messages except my test ones, so fixing it won't lose data. Gerv
Thanks guys for following up on this. :-)

I can confirm this is all now working correctly, in all directions. :-) Thanks, Peter. Gerv
Wonderful, many thanks Gerv, Peter.
