   Guest: Sasi
    • Mailing lists moderation

- The board invited Sasi to discuss the options and possibilities re. the subject. Gerald asks whether we all agree that this should be aligned with the rules / guiding principles on other platforms we have. Board agrees unanimously that code of conduct / guiding principles should apply to mailing lists and other platforms.

- Most complaints @board are about MLs, not forums or Discord / Telegram/ Matrix

- Sasi: we should have a wiki page with moderators, and a described way to contact them

- Currently we have 3 mods, 1 in EU, 1 in the US, 1 in Australia.

- Communication currently takes place via the moderators ML

We agree that we need:

- A Moderators Team mailing list process

- Way to contact them.

- A solution for permissions, since that team would currently not be able to ban/unban. Needs full access.

- Set of rules on a dedicated wiki page.

- Neal: we need to set the rules before we start

AI: Gertjan - be contact as forums mod. AI: Sasi setup a wiki page. AI: Sasi look into the details re. mailman

    • Freenode - issue#4
