My name is Virgil Dupras and I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Discussion of Collapse OS takes place on a private mailing list,
email@example.com. It works like this:
- No public archive.
- Manual management by me.
- Anyone can send an email to it, but only subscribers receive what is
sent to it. If we have spam problems, I'll adjust.
- To be added to the list, simply ask for it with an email to the
alias, I'll add you.
- Every subscriber, upon joining, is aware of other subscribers. A
list of the names of current subscribers is sent as a welcome
- Discussion is not exclusively technical. You don't have to know how
to program Collapse OS to join in.
This set up allows for a conversation that is cozier than on a public
mailing list. Having an idea of who's listening makes conversation a bit
more comfortable. Also, because this project doesn't lend itself well to
worldwide collaboration, a full-featured public mailing list is overkill.
