User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1) Build Identifier: Hello, I am a member of Bezilla, the project team that works on the BeOS/ZETA port of Mozilla & Firefox. We are in the process of updating our pages on mozilla.org (http://www.mozilla.org/ports/beos/), and we would like to have an email address for general inquiries from those interested in helping out with our port. To that effect, I am requesting an email account with the mozilla.org domain, preferably firstname.lastname@example.org. Jorge G. Mare (a.k.a. Koki) email@example.com Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: N/A Actual Results: N/A Expected Results: N/A
Notice: Jorge G. Mare already has webtree CVS account - https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=290537
Frank Hecker is in charge of mozilla.org domain usage now, I'll let him make the call on this. I tend to suspect this wouldn't be allowed, though, unless we create it as a public mailing list.
I don't know if it's correct to say that I control the mozilla.org domain (to my mind it's a project-wide resource, not necessarily specific to the Mozilla Foundation), but personally I would prefer not to see more @mozilla.org addresses. I think @mozilla.org addresses should be reserved for people like mozilla.org staff, common addresses that are project-wide (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org), and aliases for public project mailing lists.
Gerv: I don't seen a spot in the new news hierarchy for these guys... but that seems like the most logical place.
Dave: the correct place in the hierarchy is: Ports ----- mozilla.dev.ports.os2 n.p.m.os2 To which we should add mozilla.dev.ports.beos. That would then have an associated mailing list address, to which enquiries could be addressed. I concur with Frank; @mozilla.org addresses have not been given out in the past for this sort of thing, and I don't see any reason to change. Gerv
Jorge / Sergei: would creating such a newsgroup with a mailing list gateway for it satisfy what you needed?
(In reply to comment #6) > Jorge / Sergei: would creating such a newsgroup with a mailing list gateway for > it satisfy what you needed? Yes, I think that would work. Please advise if we need to do anything from our side to proceed with this.
