    We’ve been experimenting with this format of the Announcement list for just over a year, and while the general consensus is that it is much better than the previous version, it’s not quite what we want, yet. It’s also not quite what you, our community, have told us that you want. And as we’re planning an overhaul of the website soon, in order to make the right information easier to find, it seems like the right time to change the way we communicate as a community as well.

    So we’ve decided to make the move to an externally hosted mailing list service over the next few weeks. This will allow us to have more lists for special interest groups, such as other languages. It will make archiving conversations, and accessing these archives easier. And it will move discussion activity off this website, and into a space specifically designed for that activity.

    We’ll be following up with details soon, but we wanted to let you know what the plans are, in case anyone has suggestions, objections or comments.

    More to come soon

    All the best
