I've asked Gertjan if he would mind writing a goodbye message on behalf of the Board. I'll then broadcastit to the lists.

#2 Updated by pjessen 4 months ago

opensuse-infrastructure - apparently never used. (no entry in the virtual map). Removed.
yast-announce - list does not exist.

I have sent an announcement to the rest, saying the list will close on 13/7/2018.

on baloo, /tmp/klop2 currently has a list of the mailing lists above.

grep -v ^# /tmp/klop2 |\
while read l
do
cat $l/subscribers.d/? | xargs printf "/usr/bin/mlmmj-unsub -L /var/spool/mlmmj/$l -a %s -c -N\n"
cat $l/nomailsubs.d/? | xargs printf "/usr/bin/mlmmj-unsub -L /var/spool/mlmmj/$l -a %s -c -n\n"
done

#10 Updated by pjessen 3 months ago

With ISDN services being phased out in Germany and Switzerland, most likely elsewhere too, I suggest we also close "opensuse-isdn-de". The last non-spam post was in March 2014. I have sent a notification to the list suggesting it be closed by 31 August.

#11 Updated by cboltz 3 months ago

After I wrote to opensuse-doc that we won't shut it down it because of the recent activity, several people stated that they no longer need it and prefer closing it.

Therefore please shut down the opensuse-doc mailinglist.

#12 Updated by pjessen 3 months ago

opensuse-doc closed, 186 users unsubscribed.

#13 Updated by tampakrap 2 months ago

done, I removed also opensuse-foundation (which was commented out and never used, as the same day we decided to use heroes@ instead)

#14 Updated by tampakrap 2 months ago

I meant opensuse-infrastructure

#15 Updated by pjessen 2 months ago

  • Due date deleted (03/08/2018)
  • Status changed from In Progress to Closed
  • % Done changed from 50 to 100
