The pragmatic side or me says that so much of this issue could get resolved by
the following method:
just for fun lets expire oclug at lists.oclug.on.ca and archive that baby for
posterity. It really has served its purpose. Then create the following and
step into the modern world.
users at lists.oclug.on.ca
- a moderate traffic 'unmoderated' list pertaining to linux installation,
integration and configuration issues: platform independent discussions
discuss at lists.oclug.on.ca
- a heavy traffic 'unmoderated' list pertaining to all matters linux, locally,
nationally and internationally.
Add on existing lists and include the caveat for standard list protocals with
the notification that are enforced.
The ability to create dedicated issue lists that are temporary and based on
usage is determined only by the ability to administer mailman. So for example
we do a meeting on asterisks, then we can open a lists
asterisk at lists.oclug.on.ca and keep it open till traffic is exhausted on the
subject. Once max capacity is reached archive the list and make it available
under a subject heading on the website inclusive of speaker notes and user
generated HowTo's or whatever.
-list registration is based on list subscription not OCLUG membership.
OCLUG membership is based on OCLUG registration, a seperate process.
This solution does not address nor speak to issues raised by Bill S. however
may be one element of dealing with the same as the remainder of the issue are
essential human value issue, not technical ones, that we need to sort out
individually and respond to accordingly.
