Bug#419642: New List: debian-infrastructure
I would like to establish a mailing list for infrastructure and
Name: debian-infrastructure / debian-infrastructure-announce
debian-services / debian-services-announce
Rationale: There is currently no way to inform developers and users
about the downtime of internal and public services,
important configuration changes of Debian hosts etc.
Short description: Announcements about the Debian Infrastructure
Long description: This list covers announcements about changes in the
Debian infrastructure including services the Debian
project directly or indirectly provides.
Category: Users / Developers
Post policy: moderated in the same way as debian-devel-announce
(i.e. every developer is allowed to send GPG signed mail)
Web archive: yes
I would like to see information such as the following be distributed
via this list:
. alpha buildd is moving, downtime expected
. IPv6 available for security servers
. ftp-master moved to new bandwidth donator
. New sparc porting machine added to the network
. volatile archive moving, down for one day
. backports now supports packages for etch and sarge
The name of the list is discusseable, of course.
