The time has come to re-open (or should I say re-re-re-re-re-open) the
discussion about moving our mailing list off of its current infrastructure
and onto something else.
We’ve looked at using Google Groups to host our fancy new mailing lists
but that doesn’t seam feasible primarily because it’s going to be nearly
impossible to cleanly migrate all of our existing messages to Google
To that end, we’d like to enlist (pun intended) your help in trying out
Simplelists.com to see if this platform will suit our needs.
How can you help?
We’ve created a test mailing list  and have imported messages from the
Chef Announce mailing list there. Have a look around and try subscribing,
sending and replying to messages, and anything else you currently do with
the mailing list. How does it work for you? Any feedback?
The test email list will receive messages at
Please send your feedback directly to me (email@example.com), post it on
the new mailing list, or reply to this message.
I’ll host a Google+ Hangout  this Friday at 12:30 PM UTC  for anyone
that’s interested in joining a live discussion about the mailing list.
