3.5.7 Managing Mailing Lists

Every team should have a mailing list on and use it for internal communications. All active translators should be on the list. The list owner should be the co-ordinator of the team. The name of the list should begin with ‘www-lang-’. The team co-ordinator is in the position to decide about the settings like being public or private.

The list will make it possible for the GNU project to contact the team when the co-ordinator disappears; its archive will also give access to the history for new translators.

You can create new mailing lists via the Savannah interface. However, this should be done after some thought. If the project membership is low (<= 10 members), there is no need to create more than one mailing list.

You can redirect all messages generated by the trackers to any list.
