Description

Hi Jens, just a quick request for a new email list that would make Erin's life easier..

What is the list name?

tor-employees@…

What is the email address of the list maintainer?

ewyatt@…

What is a one sentence description of the list?

Tor employees.


In the past I was the chief critic of such a list but I was wrong. Lacking this list creates extra work for poor Erin, and the prospective concerns I had about community cohesion are things we can address if they arise. It's silly of me to make Erin's life harder on a hypothetical.

Erin will administer the list, and use it to provide HR notifications.

Thanks!

I created the list, see https://lists.torproject.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/tor-employees
Currently it has pretty much default settings. So Erin please either set some custom values or specify what you like and I'll do it for you.

However I'm unsure where to make the entry at https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/emailLists
Could one of you please clarify what kind of list it will be? Announcement, discussion, etc.?

Thanks Jens! This is an administrative list (like tor-board@). I'll add it to the wiki.

Thanks!

Added. Erin. please be aware that email lists default to being open (ie, anyone can subscribe). If you'd like I'd be happy to configure this list to match tor-internal@ (minus its membership). That's probably closer to the initial configuration you intend.

If you'd like to go that route let me know, and once the settings match all you would need to do is fill in the membership you want it to have.

Thank you all! I reeeally appreciate it.

@Atagar - yes, if you could please configure it to match tor-internal for now, that would be great. Thank you!
