Description

hey - I was wondering if I could get a email listserv for the OSGEO US Chapter that is forming. No rush - just at some point.

Change History (14)

I would like to bump the priority of this so the mailing list is available in time for the foss4gna event.

Looks like https://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/admin let's us try creating a list, going to see what happens.

comment:3 by wildintellect, 4 years ago

We have several SAC members who handle the list creation. It's not hard but there are a couple of steps to get it right. The original request fails to mention specifically what address is being requested, please specify. https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/SAC:Mailing_Lists

Can we create a mailing list for osgeo-us

That seems to be in keeping with other osgeo local chapter mailing lists.

comment:5 by jive, 4 years ago

Confirmed with initial members "osgeo-us" mailing list request for OSGeo.US local chapter.

I think we now have the requested information.

Hi all,

We haven't been very strict on this, but in regard of local chapters lists names we usually just use the country name, as with UK, Belgium, Brasil, Sri Lanka, Portugal, Poland, etc. We have a few naming examples using "osgeo" prefix though: Japan, China and Russia.

I'm asking for confirmation because renaming afterwards a list is a bit painful so I'd rather settle this now :-)

Also, I would like to confirm you prefer the ISO3166-1 alpha2 over alpha3 code, so US better than USA.

We would be happy to follow SAC policy, the initial request did not specify a mailing list name. What name are you suggesting? "usa" ?

comment:11 by jsanz, 4 years ago

Yes, sorry for not being explicit, I'm suggesting as preferred option: usa [at] lists.osgeo.org

But again, us [at] lists.osgeo.org would also be fine, since both are standard acronyms.

This is really a case of the parties being involved being to busy to track the activity, they simply want a mailing list in time for the conference.

Please use "US" thank you.
