You're receiving this email as you are a list administrator or moderator of
a Wikimedia Mailman mailing list (lists.wikimedia.org).
Today a new change was deployed to Mailman which changes the default theme
for listinfo pages from current bland box-based one to a more user-friendly
and Wikimedia-designed theme which has been used by a few lists over the
past few months. For those who want to see the patch for this change,
https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/154964/. You can see an example of this
new theme at https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/test.
This change has taken effect on all lists which are using the default
theme. This will *not* affect any lists which are using custom list info
pages, including lists which were already using the new theme before it
became the default.
If upon receiving this email the design of the list info page that you
manage has not changed, you can change the theme to the new one through the
Mailman web interface. Please copy and paste the HTML at
the first line of <languages />) into your lists' listinfo.html. You can
access this by going to the list administration interface and clicking the
'Edit the public HTML files and text pages' and then clicking
'listinfo.html'. For ease of access, you can go to <
replacing "your-list" with the name of the list you manage.
This is a small change for list administrators but a big change towards
making Mailman more user friendly for the Wikimedia community. We are
working on implementing a few more changes to Mailman (such as making
fighting spam/preventing it even easier) which we hope will benefit the
community using lists and the community managing them. If you have any
suggestions for Mailman, please file a bug at Bugzilla under the 'Mailing
lists' component which can be found under the 'Wikimedia' product. Quick
