There are places on the Internet where it says that since Debian is the premier accessible distribution, the debian-accessibility list is the default location to access accessibility information.
I find that to be so.
His announcement, especially considering how very terse it was, certainly wasn't tedious to me.
If it were very long and weekly, I would agree.
The Debian-Accessibility mailing list is the central point of communication for Debian-Accessibility. It serves as a forum for potential, as well as current, users of the Debian system who do have special needs. Additionally, it is used to coordinate development efforts around the various topics of Accessibility.
Bring authors of different projects with similar goals together.
It's even one of the Project goals of this list.
The Project goals match the information that's elsewhere, that is a list where blind users can find discussion of open source accessible Linux.
The Project goals are generous, and inclusive of those who are trying to help the community of those helping the community that needs accessibility.
I was proud to belong to such a project, even though I only test things, it was a very good project the way the Project Goals say.
