It should be no secret these days that the Mozilla Foundation and its
related projects are no longer a pet project of Netscape, yet the
newsgroups we are using for public discussions still bear the Netscape
name. We've been planning for years to move from
netscape.public.mozilla.* to just mozilla.*, and the time has finally
In August, we announced a partnership with Giganews Newsgroups
(http://www.giganews.com/) to provide NNTP services for our
news.mozilla.org domain. It's taken a few months of planning to make
it happen, but we're now in the process of moving all of those
newsgroups over to the new hierarchy.
This group will be moving sometime later this evening (Wednesday,
January 18). I apoligize for the short notice, I wound up having to
compress the schedule somewhat.
What do you need to do to maintain your subscriptions?
If you read this newsgroup via NNTP, you will need to change your
subscriptions manually after today to point at mozilla.dev.planning.
Please note that at this time, these newsgroups will NOT be propagated
to Usenet in general, so you must be using news.mozilla.org to access
them (see the FAQ link near the top of this message).
If you read this list via the email list, your subscription will
automatically be moved for you to the new mailing list. You may need
to adjust your mail filters if you filter your list mail.
