What should these mailing lists be called?
In a post for a different bug, Dave said that the news groups will have to be created first. So I will wait for him to get back and do that and then create these mailing lists. If this is urgent and needs to happen with/without the newsgroups, please let me know and I will go ahead and create them.
Creating them at the same time as the newsgroups is perfect.
I'm curious whether there's an ETA on this? I'd like to get the MDC topic pages updated to include all the mailing list/newsgroup links so people know that discussion areas exist, but I'd like to do them all at once. Let me know, thanks.
(In reply to comment #5) > I'm curious whether there's an ETA on this? Hopefully in about 24 hours. The newgroup request has been submitted to Giganews, I'll get the lists created as soon as the groups show up.
These groups have now been created, according to my copy of Thunderbird :-) Gerv
Yeah, I saw them show up yesterday morning and was a bit busy with addons melting under the 188.8.131.52 load. :) I should have the lists up shortly.
OK, these are done. You should have the list admin password emails by now.
bz, we want to make sure we *don't* segregate discussion about the mozilla codebase and web content. The mozilla.web-developer hierarchy was a mistake to begin with and this is fixing that problem (the web-developer hierarchy will be removed).
So we want to have the .dom newswgroup to be filled with "how do I?" questions instead of actual discussion about our DOM implementation? That's a major problem we had with the old newsgroups... but if this is now the official reason for the newsgroup existing, that's good to know. Now I can unsubscribe from it.
These new groups don't seem to be on Google Groups yet. Could someone look into that? Thanks :)

Sorry to be a bother about this, but we need the google groups to know about these so we have searchable archives.
Ticket was opened with Google to request these on February 8th. They were sent a reminder on March 9th. I'm sending another reminder right now.
