Reqiest for FOSS4G-announce list

Reported by: gsteinmon Owned by: jsanz

Cc: Mgt@…


In addition to our community email list , FOSS4G2017 I would like to request a new FOSS4G-announce or FOSS4G list so we and future FOSS4G LOC members can create a outbound channel for updates about the event and event planning.

Currently, it seems that we re getting many unsubscribes as the community discussion reaches up to 30 messages per day.

The announce list would help us keep future interested participant.

Thank you,

I'm not sure the benefit of yet another announce list. A 'foss4g-announce' list is actually the OSGeo-discuss list. Have you considered sending all of your FOSS4G 2017 press releases directly to the OSGeo-Discuss list?

For example, a typical workflow is:

Does that make sense?

I'll also describe this to the foss4g2017 discussion list. As i said, it would be great to have more open discussions with the 2017 marketing committee.

Jeff and I have discussed this on the SAC list here:

I still believe that it would be beneficial to have a FOSS4G mailing list for announcements. Please let me know if there is anything else needed to make this happen.

Thank you for your time,

Moving to the "Mailing List" component might move it further
