#3172 new task

Move to marketing@lists.osgeo.org to discourse

Description

The marketing committee has approved a motion to complete move to discourse.

The system admin committee does not have a clear wiki page I can point to describing what is involved or expected. So the following are from my notes (and may not be accurate):

  1. Setup https://discourse.osgeo.org/c/marketting discourse; filled with content from the mailman archive history.
  2. Associate marketing@… email address with group; this would be used for those interacting like an email list.
  3. Update wiki instructions on committee communication
  4. During transition marketing@… email list footer would provide instructions liking to wiki above
  5. After 1 month shut off mailman, collect e-mail archives that have occurred in the meantime.

Change History (14)

It is unclear to me if this will be a top-level category, or if we anticipate committees into a committee category (resulting in "https://discourse.osgeo.org/c/committee/marketting" category).

Categories have been created. Please do not use yet, Migration is planned at 11:00 pm UTC

comment:3 by cvvergara, 2 months ago

Migration has been done.

@jive

Please send a message to marketing along this lines

Hello All,

We decided it would be better for everyone still interested in being on this mailing list to log in or register on their own to discourse.osgeo.org.

If you have an OSGeo account already, it is preferable to use with LDAP. You can also log in with your Github account if you have one as detailed in

welcome message.

Finally there is an option to register using your email.

See instructions here: ​https://discourse.osgeo.org/t/welcome-to-osgeo/5

If you want an LDAP account, go to

https://id.osgeo.org/ldap/create

You can email PUT NAME HERE/email to ask for the mantra code, with following

Use the email registered on the mailing list subject: "Mantra Code for Valencia mailist" Body: link to mail on the Valencia mailing list that used your email

Details of what you need to do to continue to email the mailing list is listed here:

The Valencia discourse mailing list: ​https://discourse.osgeo.org/c/geoinquietos/valencia/40

Want to create a new topic? ​https://discourse.osgeo.org/g/valencia

The list of the old archives will still be kept here - ​https://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/valencia/

If you have questions feel free to ask in discourse.

Thanks,

About the mail, this is used

marketing@…

Let me ask if without the discourse is possible.

comment:5 by robe, 2 months ago

I think if you set up an alias in osgeo6 marketing -> marketing@… and then on discourse set up for the receive marketing@…|marketing@… that should work.

Each discourse category can process multiple email as long as they are | separated.

We just can't do anything at lists.osgeo.org because mailman has a catchall for that domain so could never be redirected to discourse, unless we can dig deeper into the guts of mailman.

Can anything be done about the text at https://discourse.osgeo.org/t/about-the-marketing-category/26570 ?

  • clear instructions on how people can sign up
  • how to treat as a mailing list
  • link to the marketing webpage and wiki

@jive

Please send me the "about marketing committee". After you decide about the settings, then I can add the instructions.

I am so confused by the text, I do not know if you want me to email the mailing list. The text provided references:

If you have an OSGeo account already, it is preferable to use with LDAP. You can also log in with your Github account if you have one as detailed in welcome message.

Q: what "welcome message"? Is this a welcome message I am writing ...

Q: The links are about valencia, do you wish me to rewrite those for marketing group?

comment:9 by cvvergara, 2 months ago

Sorry for the confusion.

step 0) Send me the "About marketing committee" so that I can update the message. will add the instructions on step 2 bellow.

step 1)

Currently the setting is

"everyone": see, reply, create

But if you want, I can make:

  • "everyone": see, reply OR see OR nothing unless they are registered to marketing group.
  • "marketing": see, reply, create

Where

  • "everyone" is any registered user in discourse, and
  • "marketing" is the marketing group.

and

  • Create: can create new topics within the category
  • reply: can reply but not create new topics
  • see: can read

step 2) Once you decide on that I can adjust

  • the marketing group settings
  • and the instructions

Replying to jive:

Email received as marketting (two t) not marketing one t

The issue was only on the discourse message. The alias in the server is all fine. Emails sent to marketing@osgeo.org are redirected to marketing@discourse.osgeo.org.
