[ga] dnso.org's lists
As of today, July 25th 1999, we have the following number of
participants to the dnso.org's lists:
The first two lists: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org are open
for public subscriptions. It means that anybody can subscribe,
provided that Majordomo checks the sender address -- you need to
send your request to email@example.com from the same email address
you are requesting subscription for. The last rule is necessary
to prevent Joe.Spammer@some.where to subscribe *you* to every
majordomo list without *your* knowledge and *your* consent.
As the population of firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com are not
identical neither both lists have the same purpose, the DNSO
secretariat is sending all announcements to both.
The members of every list except firstname.lastname@example.org have access
to information about other subscribers through majordomo "who" request.
The subscriptions to wg-* lists are managed by some volounteers,
sometimes with the help/backup/startup of the DNSO listadmin.
All lists are publicly archived,
see http://www.dnso.org/listsdnso.html for more information.
Whereas we use Majordomo mecanismes for public comments,
you do not need (and you cannot) subscribe to email@example.com.
Public comments are open for everybody, and there is a need
for a human to approve received messages (spam problem).
This may explain why your message sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
do not appears immediately on the website.
The non-cross posting rule is reinforced on the dnso.org.
All rules are evolving with experience and dnso.org needs.
