New announcements mailing list

Posted by Jonathan Bennett on 7 October 2009 in English (English)

There is a new moderated announcements mailing list:

http://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/announce

This is a low-volume list with no chatter. It will only carry notices of things like server down time, new versions of software and any other major events affecting the whole OpenStreetMap community.

Does it make any sense to carry the announcements on blogs.openstreetmap.org ?

If someone wants to set up a Twitter feed pointing to the Announce archives they're welcome to, but it's not something we're planning to do ourselves.

The feed chilly points out is run by another OSMer, but I think their idea is to report lots of OSM-related news, where the announce list is intended to be just announcements of events that will affect the whole community on an operational level -- new software, downtime, that sort of thing.
