Hi Per,

we just discussed the mailinglists in the board meeting and decided that the opensuse-wiki and opensuse-web mailinglist should be merged (into opensuse-web). They are both low-traffic and have very similar goals and audiences.

Please move all users from the opensuse-wiki mailinglist to the opensuse-web mailinglist and then shut down the opensuse-wiki mailinglist.

It's probably a good idea to send an announcement to both lists when doing the merge ;-)

Sorry about the long wait.

opensuse-wiki has 227 subscribers. I will send a notice that we intend to merge opensuse-wiki into opensuse-web, then wait for a week and submit subscribe requests for opensuse-web.

2018/05/18 - 24 nomail subscribers removed, 201 regular subscribers removed. Corresponding subscription invites sent for opensuse-web.

Theo, we should probably update the virtual maps, remove entries for 'opensuse-wiki'.

Good question ;-) shows that it didn't have
any traffic since a year, and had a two year break before. IMHO we don't
need it anymore (and should point people to the opensuse-de

Sarah, you are more active in the german wiki - what's your opinion on
the opensuse-wiki-de list?

We don't have many contributors in the German wiki. And most German people in the wiki are using the German translation mailing list. So we can merge the German wiki mailing list with the translation mailing list.
The reason: The German wiki is a translation of the English wiki.

Just to make sure - I merge opensuse-wiki-de into opensuse-translation-de?

Christian or Sarah, would one of you write a quick message to post to opensuse-wiki-de, "Tschüss and thanks for all the fish" ...
