Enhydra: FW: ADMIN: mailing list changes


Hello lists,

The enhydra.org mailing lists are about to change.

We are changing list servers, from majordomo to mailman (www.list.org).
There are quite a few little differences, but here are the most important
ones:

User management -- instead of sending mail to subscribe or unsubscribe, you
may now use a series of web pages to manage your user preferences for any of
your subscribed enhydra.org lists.

SPAM control -- the lists will now be members-only.  Any list member can
send mail to the list and have it forwarded to the list members immediately.
If anyone who is not a member sends mail, it will be queued for the list
administrator to review and approve/reject.  Thus, people who aren't list
members can still post, but spammers and other miscreants will have a much
tougher time.

The lists will be migrated over the next couple of days.  Expect a "welcome"
email with your web-management password, and another "the lists have
changed!" mail that describes a few of the new features, and how to manage
your mailing list account.

If you have any questions, please mail the support@enhydra.org list or your
project chair.

(If any of you are wondering "why?"... many people have worried about the
spam that occasionally leaked through the old list manager; this will
prevent almost all of that.  The new list manager also greatly eases the
support burden.  Enhydra.org is growing rapidly; we now have over 70 lists,
and I just couldn't keep up with them!)
