Hi Florian,

on the steering-discuss list, we currently discuss about e-mail addresses for community members. Just focusing on the technical issues for this mail:

I would like to have those e-mail forwarders handled by a separate mail server, independent from the mailing list server. However, we have a few listes directly, which makes things complicated.

There are two options for this issue:

a.) We could use or some other domain ending (TLD) for those e-mail addresses

b.) We move the mailing lists to some subdomain (like =>

Thoughts on that?

did you ask the community how many of them think it's necessary to give out emails to each and everyone? What was the response? Actually, Sophie has forwarded one of your messages about this to the L10n mailing list, and I wouldn't say the response was very enthusiastic. There was a total of 4 replies, three of which (incl. mine) suggested that automatically providing email addresses to contributors is unnecessary.

So, if there is a consensus that this should be handled on case-by-case basis, then I wonder how problematic it would be to just keep lists as they are, while at the same time providing emails for some community members. In other words: why do you want a separate mail server first of all?

On the other hand, even if separate servers is the only option, why not just set up the appropriate forwarders for mailing lists? The lists themselves could then be managed by e.g., but they would still have proper addresses.

And if I can't convince you about this either, then I'm with Fabian: the lists should be hosted on "Global" just doesn't make sense.
