Problems with mailing list, migration on the way


(Shay Banon) #1

Heya,

I created the mailing list on a google apps account (paying one...) with
the hopes of not running into spam problems down the road. The problem with
that is the fact that I did not know about the host of problems I will have
with google account one... . The latest one is a major problem, where google
apps restrict the size of members to 1000 members, and we just hit that
(yay!).

So, I am going to migrate the group to a new group in the "public" google
groups. I will start to work on it. Sadly, I don't think migrating content
is possible, but at least I will be able to subscribe all of you. I will
automatically subscribe all under a "Send email for each message and update"
option, so you will have to change that to your preference (sorry about
that...).

Luckily, the group has been mirrored on nabble, and it will remain as a
mirror to the new group as well. This group will be closed (but not deleted)
and old content will be searchable from both nabble and this interface,
posting will not be allowed though. And posts should only go to the new
group mailing address. I will post details on the new group shortly, but you
should get it as well via direct mail once I invite you.

I apologize for that. If someone knows of a better way to migrate the
mails, it would be great.

ok, there seems to be a problem with adding too many users to the new
google group, so I will slowly try and add users. I hope it won't ban
the group or something... . Here is the link to the new group if you
want to register to it: https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=en#!forum/elasticsearch
directly now. I will close this group for posts.

Sorry about all of this...
