Moderators Needed for onap-discuss and onap-tsc

Kenny Paul

(bcc'd to onap-tsc)


The time has come for the Community to take over the moderation responsibility for both the onap-tsc and onap-discuss lists. I know y'all are up to your necks in deliverables right now, so I'm not going to press hard on this until the Beijing release has been issued. That said, I am expecting to turn these lists over to Community moderation by May 29th at the absolute latest.


Moderators are responsible for either releasing or rejecting held messages, including messages (cross)posted by non-members and messages that exceed globally defined thresholds for message size, number of recipients and/or content type. Anyone can be a Moderator. You do not need to be a TSC member, PTL, Committer code contributor, as long as you are active in the Community
. . . and be subscribed to the list you are moderating.


Below are the basic rules for mailing list management across all LF projects:

- A minimum of 3 members from the Community are required as Moderators for all mailing lists

There are have never been any moderators from the Community for either of these lists


- If the number of Moderators should ever fall below 3 a mailing list will be locked and made read only

I hope that you have enjoyed getting a free ride in that regard for over a year now ;-)


- Moderators are not granted permissions to modify any list configuration variables. 

I've made a ton of adjustments to both of these lists to try and accommodate your usage patterns as much as I can.


All LF hosted lists will be migrated from MailMan to before the end of the year, which will make moderation easier.  Discussions on moving ONAP will begin in earnest starting in June and I will of course be assisting with that effort.


Please contact me if you are interested.
