Sort out osuosl hosting notification subscription

Reported by: strk Owned by: sac@…
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: SysAdmin Keywords: osuosl, hosting


OSUOSL sends out announces about hosting via the mailing list at

It looks like we were subscribed as sac@…, but the sac list bounces messages coming from non-subscribed so refuses most incoming traffic from that list, which have arbitrary From addresses.

Today I've requested subscription as sysadmin@… too, but didn't confirm that yet.

This ticket is to sort this whole thing out and document it on the wiki.

can't we have ^[^@]+@(.+\.|)osuosl\.org$ in accept_these_non_members in sac's mailman conf?

comment:2 by strk, 8 years ago

I don't see an option for that. And are we sure only @osuosl people are able to post there ?

comment:3 by strk, 8 years ago

meanwhile I've confirmed subscription to hosting@osuosl as sysadmin@osgeo (an alias to a few SAC people)

comment:4 by strk, 8 years ago

The hosting@osuosl list maintainer confirmed only @osuosl people can post to that list, so if accept_these_non_members can be fed a regexp, we should be fine.

The wildcard seems feasible:

Alright, I removed

And added:


We'll have to retire the sysadmin@ subscription as soon as we confirm hosting@osgeo mails do arrive to SAC lits
