Subject: [gentoo-dev-announce] Upcoming posting restrictions on the gentoo-dev mailing list
Date: Tue, 09 Jan 2018 21:22:54
Message-Id: 1685019.DAF74n7IXa@pinacolada
During the last Gentoo council meeting, the decision was made to implement 
changes to the gentoo-dev mailing list [1].

These changes affect only the gentoo-dev mailing list, and will come into 
effect on 23 January 2018.

* Subscribing to the list and receiving list mail remains as it is now.
* Posting to the list will only be possible to Gentoo developers and
  whitelisted additional participants.
* Whitelisting requires that one developer vouches for you. We intend this
  to be as unbureaucratic as possible.
* Obviously, repeated off-topic posting as well as behaviour against the
  Code of Conduct [2] will lead to revocation of the posting permission.

If, as a non-developer, you want to participate in a discussion on 
- either reply directly to the author of a list mail and ask him/her to 
forward your message,
- or ask any Gentoo developer of your choice to get you whitelisted.

If, as a developer, you want to have someone whitelisted, please comment on 
bug 644070 [3]. Similar to Bugzilla editbugs permission, if you are vouching 
for a contributor you are expected to keep an eye on their activity.
