About Wikitech-l

This is the list for discussing the technical organization of the Wikimedia projects.

There are two different manners to use this list;
- As an ordinary e-mail discussion list
- As a newsgroup

In order to use this list like a newsgroup you must specify the NNTP-server news.gmane.org at your newsreader. You also must be subscribed to the newsgroup gmane.science.linguistics.wikipedia.technical.

You may automatically link there by using the following URL:
news://news.gmane.org/gmane.science.linguistics.wikipedia.technical

For posting to the newsgroup you must be a list member. The first time you post to the newsgroup you will receive an email for verification, which is normal. If you work by means of the newsgroup you probably do not want to receive the messages by email. To disable email delivery go to "Edit Options". (at the end of this page)

You can also use the gmane web interface for reading AND posting to the list.

http://news.gmane.org/gmane.science.linguistics.wikipedia.technical/

Pick "post" or "followup" from the drop-down menu.

Many Wikimedia mailing lists are also available on gmane.
Search for wikimedia or a specific project name on the list of newsgroups of news.gmane.org

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the Wikitech-l Archives.
