Decommissioning dev-tech-layout mailman list; please use dev-platform instead
Hello, dev-tech-layout mailing list subscribers!
As you may have noticed, the dev-tech-layout mailing list has been
effectively unused for quite some time now; in practice, we’ve been using
other forums like dev-platform or mozilla’s Matrix instance instead
of using this list. The vast majority of messages that’ve been sent to the
dev-tech-layout list over the past few years have just been spam (which
hopefully haven’t reached your inbox, due to manual list-administrator
moderation). There’s also been the occasional
legitimate-but-non-layout-related post that we’ve typically responded to by
directing the poster to a different more-appropriate forum.
In any case, the list isn’t serving much of a distinct purpose at this
point, so Cameron and I (the dev-tech-layout list’s current admins) have
decided that it's time to decommission it. Past messages will continue to
be archived on Mozilla’s newsgroup server, which can be viewed at Google
Groups. (Much of the history there is spam, unfortunately, which has
probably made it there via direct posts to the newsgroup, bypassing the
mailing list’s manual moderation.)
Going forward: if you have a message that you might've considered for this
list, please instead send it to the dev-platform mailing list, or post a
message in the layout channel on Mozilla’s Matrix instance (links below at
 and ).
