ANST-Announce - Mailing list changes at Ansteorra.org...

Due to the changes in mailing list software over the years and the
lack of growth in Majordomo, the Ansteorran mailing lists are going to
be upgraded to new software. This software is Mailman to administer
the mailing lists. This software gives a lot more flexibility to the
list owner as well as the list subscribers.
While it is primarily a web driven interface, there are also email
versions of the commands. I will be working with the list owners and
subscribers to ensure that our needs are met.
Over the next few weeks the different mailing lists hosted on the
Ansteorran server will be converted to this new format. As this happens
the list owner will be notified of the change and how to administer
it properly. As well, the list itself will be notified so members can
look at the interface and make the changes they want to make.
While all of this happens the information on the webpage at:
and the information contained in the Rialto FAQ on the webpage at:
will be updated.
If a list owner wishes to volunteer to convert his list early, please
contact me immediately so we can arrange for it. Otherwise I will be
doing them in order by Kingdom Region, then Kingdom level, than SCA-wide
The Southern Region will be done first, starting with the Barony of
Bryn Gwlad either later today or tomorrow. (This should re-instate
the mail <-> news gateway for the Barony.)
I apologize if this seems like short notice, but it is something that
has been in the works for some time. After the conversion occurs I
think everyone will be very pleased with the new setup.

Bryn Gwlad - Ansteorra | graceful about that lady. A young woman bursting with
Dark Horde Moritu | vigor. She blinked at the sudden light. She writes
pug at pug.net | beautiful poems. When ever shall we meet again?"
Note: The views do not reflect the SCA nor the Kingdom of Ansteorra.
