Collapse OS — Discuss

My name is Virgil Dupras and I can be reached at hsoft@hardcoded.net.

Discussion of Collapse OS takes place on a private mailing list, discuss@collapseos.org. It works like this:

  1. No public archive.
  2. Manual management by me.
  3. Anyone can send an email to it, but only subscribers receive what is sent to it. If we have spam problems, I'll adjust.
  4. To be added to the list, simply ask for it with an email to the alias, I'll add you.
  5. Every subscriber, upon joining, is aware of other subscribers. A list of the names of current subscribers is sent as a welcome message.
  6. 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.
