There has been a proposal to move Fedora-related mailing lists from Red Hat's mailing list server/domain to use the domain name lists.fedoraproject.org and be hosted on Fedora hardware.
Issues to Discuss
- How much disk space would archives take? (We have to back it up too...)
- Do we have people to manage the lists?
- We should probably have list sponsors so managament can remain local (and so infrastructure people aren't a needless middleman)
- Existing Fedora lists are "owned" by Fedora contibutors that can handle routine administrative tasks.
- jcollie, nirik, ixs and thias have volunteered to help with maintaining the mailing list server
- Do we have hardware/cpu resources to process the volume of email?
- We need to get some stats from Red Hat IS so we know just how much email we're talking about.
- Dedicated hardware or Xen guest or customize the config of some other box?
- What does this gain us?
- Don't have to route mailing list administration through Red Hat IS
- Fedora-specific policy as to mailing list naming & configuration
- fedoraproject.org domain
- web pages could be customized to match rest of Fedora web pages
Note - the domain name can be handled with lists.fp.o A and MX records without moving the lists.
