We've got several mail<->news gateways still operating on the netscape.public.mozilla.* hierarchy, which need to be shut down as we've officially abandoned that hierarchy. Our mailman server on that box is stressing at the moment, also, and this will hopefully help cut down on its stress load. A quick check of the list server shows the following mail gateways still active: mozilla-beos mozilla-newsclips mozilla-browser mozilla-calendar-checkins mozilla-checkins mozilla-crash-data mozilla-gtk mozilla-layout-checkins mozilla-mac mozilla-macosx mozilla-mstone mozilla-patches mozilla-performance-size-matters mozilla-platform mozilla-porkjockeys mozilla-prefs mozilla-qt mozilla-rhapsody mozilla-rt-messaging mozilla-unix mozilla-unix-checkins mozilla-win32 mozilla-xpfe-checkins We should start out by posting an email to each list notifying the membership that the list is being shut down. I have a script on rheet which does this already that we used to mass-notify all the lists of the migration to the other list server a month or so ago. I don't know if we need to wait after sending that notification before shutting them down. Opinions?
suggestions on text of the email are welcome, too.
You should include a URL to the new newsgroup list in the message, so people can move elsewhere. http://www.mozilla.org/community/developer-forums.html Other than that, I don't mind much what happens. Gerv
(In reply to comment #2) > You should include a URL to the new newsgroup list in the message, so people > can move elsewhere. > http://www.mozilla.org/community/developer-forums.html There are no new newsgroups, these are the ones we're abandoning outright.
oh, newsgroup *list*. Yes, we should do that. :)
OK, the mailing on this has been sent, warning folks that the mail-to-news gateways for these groups will be shut down on Sunday.
And they're all gone!!!! See https://mail.mozilla.org/listinfo/ for a list of remaining public mailing lists on rheet.
