[ALLY] List Processing Changes
From: scott:rebol at: 19-Oct-2000 2:01
To All List Members,
After many discussions about how best to manage the growing number of
lists and the equally large number of requested features for those lists, we
have determined that the best course of action for the moment is to migrate
the current mailing lists to Listar, an open source software package. This
software offers many of the features, which have been requested on the list,
such as digest mode.
This move will allow us to offer extended features immediately, while
giving us the appropriate time necessary to enhance the current SELMA script
with all of the requested features. SELMA will still be operational for the
[notice--rebol--com] list, and for short term lists that may be necessary for
individual projects. When the enhancements to SELMA have been completed, we
will notify the lists, and convert the lists from Listar back to SELMA.
But, that change should be seemless to all list members.
However, the current change from SELMA to Listar will not be totally
seemless. Instead of a single email address for both postings and commands,
now there will be separate address as follows:
Previous Address New Posting Address New Command Address
[ally--rebol--com] [ally-list--rebol--com] [ally-request--rebol--com]
[list--rebol--com] [rebol-list--rebol--com] [rebol-request--rebol--com]
[command--rebol--com] [command-list--rebol--com] [command-request--rebol--com]
[rebol-apache--rebol--com] [apache-list--rebol--com] [apache-request--rebol--com]
You will not need to subscribe to any list that you were previously a
member of, that has all been migrated to the new system. You will, however,
need to edit any email aliases in your mailer to the new posting address for
each mailing list of which you are a member.
We hope that this change is a pleasant one, and we encourage you to send
any comments about this to [feedback--rebol--com--These] lists are dedicated to
