sponsor -at- 2018.foss4g.org --> markiliffe -at- gmail.com, puntofisso@…

Do you have a link to an official document / mailing list thread showing right of those addresses ? Or can a board member confirm here ?

comment:2 Changed 10 months ago by EliL

Mark is the co-chair of FOSS4G 2018, I consider him an authority for anything on the topic of FOSS4G 2018. See for example details in SVN listing him as co-chair. https://svn.osgeo.org/osgeo/foss4g/proposals/2018/TanzaniaFOSS4G2018LetterofIntent.pdf

You can also ask for confirmation on the conference list that Mark is an authority for 2018. (or search the archives.)

Or note that he also opened this ticket, #1883

Confirmed, please create the aliases for Mark.

Mark: can I suggest that you also request 2 new mailing lists:

  • foss4g2018@… (public discussions and sharing the passion for 2018!)
  • foss4g2018-private@… (a private mailing list to handle discussions within the local committee team - with no archives and not publicly listed)

You might choose to use one of those down the stretch to the event, especially the public one, as it's a great way to share news and allow for general discussions.

Replying to Jeff McKenna:

Mark: can I suggest that you also request 2 new mailing lists:

  • foss4g2018@… (public discussions and sharing the passion for 2018!)
  • foss4g2018-private@… (a private mailing list to handle discussions within the local committee team - with no archives and not publicly listed)

You might choose to use one of those down the stretch to the event, especially the public one, as it's a great way to share news and allow for general discussions.

I've found that the email blast system (of their chosing) is much better than the public list for sharing news and promotion. In some cases the public lists have seemed to create confusion.

In any case, do whatever the LOC decides is best for them.

Hopefully we can return to Mark's original request for FOSS4G 2018 Email addresses and someone from SAC has time to work on it. Thanks for everyone on SAC.

Best regards, Eli

This is why i said it as a suggestion. It is up to the local committee. It's important to give the local committee all of the options that past committees have had.

Thanks for this - we’ve taken over the mailblast system from Boston, which has quite a large amount of subscribers, we’ve also got a mailing list sorted for LOC communications too, appreciate the suggestions Jeff - all welcome :)

Aliases foss4g2018-media@…, foss4g2018-sponsor@…, foss4g2018-chair@…, and foss4g2018-info@… created (analogous to #1267).

Addresses for 2018.foss4g.org should be handled on the server it's pointing to (or a MX record would be required).

This critical ticket has been stale for 4 months now, and it is unclear whether it is resolved or not. Can you let us know where this issue stands markiliffe?

comment:9 Changed 6 months ago by markiliffe

It’s patchy. Can someone email me/ state the precise email addresses? I have tried various combinations, but what was actioned seems to differ from the Request.

comment:10 Changed 6 months ago by jef

Nothing new to add to comment:8. Only the aliases (like those from #1267) were added:

# Per #2007
foss4g2018-media: msilikale05@yahoo.com
foss4g2018-sponsor: markiliffe@gmail.com, puntofisso@gmail.com
foss4g2018-chair: markiliffe@gmail.com, msilikale05@yahoo.com
foss4g2018-info: markiliffe@gmail.com, msilikale05@yahoo.com, geoffrey.kateregga@hotosm.org

ie. foss4g2018-media@osgeo.org is forwarded to msilikale05@yahoo.com.

2018.foss4g.org is:

$ host 2018.foss4g.org
2018.foss4g.org has address 52.28.51.102
$ host 52.28.51.102
102.51.28.52.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer ec2-52-28-51-102.eu-central-1.compute.amazonaws.com.
$ host -t mx 2018.foss4g.org
2018.foss4g.org has no MX record

I think we don't have control over that - at least I don't. So the original problem was not solved - hence the ticket was not closed.

I think we're good now - sorry, I was working on the emails from above - let's close the ticket :-)

Mark I think you have the powers to close tickets you report (next time:)

I need an official email address (forwarding) for the program committee work. The most pressing is that Paul Ramsay has requested an email address for the community voting. I twill also be used for handling other info to us.

Request:

presentations -at- 2018.fossg4g.org --> ragnvald -at - mindland.com

Happy to help but I am unsure at time where aliases for "2018.fossg4g.org" are actually managed...

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
