Welcome back! 

Just to piggyback on this post, I'd also like to let people know that we've recently lost two editors who were a significant part of working on content gaps. 

Flyer22, who made significant contributions to articles on women's health, died in January: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wikipedia_Signpost/2021-01-31/Obituary

And just recently, SlimVirgin (Sarah), who among her many significant contributions overall, also founded the Gender Gap Task Force in 2013 and wrote an essay on how to write about women on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Deceased_Wikipedians/2021#SlimVirgin

Hey folks! it's been a while.

The Gendergap mailing list just got migrated to Mailman 3, which means I now have my admin access back (I'd lost access to the previous system and hadn't had a chance to restore it for... several years.)

The list had been set to new posters being moderated, which resulted in a number of messages being caught and I wasn't able to release them. Unfortunately those messages didn't survive the migration, but I've adjusted the moderation settings and going forward new messages should go through.

I've adjusted the list description to be a bit more concise: it is now "Addressing gender equity and exploring ways to increase gender diversity in Wikimedia projects."

This part is sad, but as a heads up and for transparency's sake:
I also went ahead and removed Kevin as an Owner/Moderator of the list as I don't know who now controls his former email accounts. For those who had missed his passing, there is a lovely tribute to his life and work on the Signpost: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wikipedia_Signpost/2016-08-04/Obituary

Hope that everyone has been keeping well through this difficult time, and I look forward to seeing more activity on this list in the future with the new Mailman migration.

All the best,
