I have no idea what you're asking for here... The newsgroups are already listed at the bottom of https://www.mozilla.org/access/.

I can add this, but it would be helpful to know: what is the difference between mozilla.accessibility and the other two forums? What is it's purpose?

websites relating to mozilla
Please note:

1. dev-accessibility is no longer for user support, it is only for technical discussion.
2. dev-accessibility may go away one day, since we should use dev-platform for technical discussion.
3. accessibility@lists.mozilla.org is wide open for a11y discussion including as satdav mentions, website a11y.

* What do I put on the page as the purpose?
* Should we remove the mozilla.dev.accessibility listing?

I really think we need to hear from Ken who is organizing content for our accessibility web pages.

Satdav, by marking this bug as "depends on" bug 721518, you're saying that we have to wait until bug 721518 is marked as fixed until we can fix this bug. You sure that's the case? Bug 721518 is tracking bug, and typically tracking bugs depend on the bugs they track.

I don't think we're going to hear from Ken on this. Is there someone else to defer this to?

I apologize for my absence.

In addition to what David said, dev-accessibility has very low activity (last legitimate post was March 29 and it was about marketplace), and we are moving away from it.
I don't see any reason to keep it listed at lists.mozilla.org and continuing to send people there for the reasons above and because we want the focus to be on mozilla.accessibility.

Can we also change the description for accessibility at lists.mozilla.org from "Build the web for everyone." to "Mozilla/Web accessibility topics" or something similar?
