17 Feb 2013 OBIT Meeting
Attending: Kendra, Steve. Held at Boloco.
Mailing list cleanup
Here's the process proposal for cleaning up mailing lists. We can use this as a starting point, and refine as we go: http://voices.occupyboston.org/forum/feedback/mailing-list-cleanup-proposal
Steve and Kendra will each take a block of 20 lists. Eden volunteered to help, so we'll give her a block of twenty as well. Basic gist:
- Set up a wiki page for your cleanup list. For example http://wiki.occupyboston.org/wiki/WG/OBIT/Mailing_list_cleanup_-_Steve. Use this to keep track of your work, as you hunt down the various mailing lists, and figure out whether we keep them or disable them.
- Delete 20 items from http://wiki.occupyboston.org/wiki/WG/OBIT/Mailing_list_cleanup and move them to your personal list. In effect, you're "claiming" a block to work on. Mailing_list_cleanup should is effectively a to-do list (i.e., lists that still need to be investigated). When it's empty, we're done.
- Organize your personal cleanup list in whatever way that helps you keep track of things.
The end goal: to figure out which mailing lists can be deleted. We'll start by disabling them, waiting a while, and then deleting them.
As we go along, we can share "boilerplate" messages, regarding the cleanup.
