email groups needed

Hi All,
Free software movement has 2 branches. One is technology based and another is philosophy and politics based.

People who need technical help and tech savvy people focus only on technology. But free software began not as technological solution for some issue. its rooted very much on the politics. But the first group is not patient enough to hear any political ideas. We have to bear it. Its their freedom.

But we cannot ignore the political issues. So I request you to create 2 mailing list one for technical discussion. another for software, computer related political discussion. (remember: not general politics. Strictly on politics of technology.)

People may get annoyed by seeing alien language messages. So it will be good if create language specific sub groups for these 2 groups. At least for the philosophy group.

regards,
jagadees.

Hello.
We had discussion about setting up a mailing list for FSCI in the past. But then got busy and nothing happened. We will be setting up one soon.

Follow https://matrix.to/#/#mailman:poddery.com for updates on mailman setup. For technical discussions we can use the discourse service at https://freesoftwareindia.org/ (we are working on enabling email bridge as well).

I'm ok with either of the two before, but having an email list would be better to figuring out things.

oh great work. thanks @bhe .
one suggestion, we should hide actual mail ids of participants. now its visible for all. I think nobody should see actual mail ids including members.

We can use https://git.fosscommunity.in/community/lists.fsci.org.in/issues/ to track issues related to this service. I have already reported this issue.
