news-team should also be removed.

What should happen with the archive?

comment:3 Changed 21 months ago by steph

Have we ever had a process for what happens to inactive/retired lists? Maybe we could have a separate section below which links to inactive lists and their archives.

For now in this format, we could indicate in tor-news and news-team descriptions (inactive) and link to their archives:

news-team archives | Tor Weekly News coordination list (inactive)

tor-news archives | The archive of Tor Weekly News (inactive). For monthly a newsletter, subscribe to: newsletter.torproject.org

Replying to qbi:

What should happen with the archive?

Don't forget to archive everything with web.archive.org as well ;)

Can we get this updated please?

comment:7 Changed 20 months ago by qbi

Should I delete the archive or should it remain?

comment:8 Changed 20 months ago by steph

I made a suggestion for how to handle in comment3. Does that work?

comment:9 Changed 20 months ago by qbi

The process was that someone files a ticket, the list gets deleted and the list entry at https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/emailLists is also deleted. So we never listed old/retired/inactive lists somewhere. However if someone looks at the history of the wiki page it is easy to find out what existed in the past.

When reading 3 I'm not sure what should happen with the archive which resides on the harddrive. When I delete the list, I can remove the archive and https://lists.torproject.org/pipermail/tor-news/ (or similar pages) will disappear or I can delete just the mailing list and the archive is still available. Could you tell which way I should go? Thanks.

I don't think we should delete the archive, so then delete the list entry of news-team and tor-news.
