Hi.  We're setting up a mailing list for announcing Open Source
Initiative actions, e.g. approving licenses, position papers, good
hair days, etc.

If you'd like to be on it, send email to:

You'll get back a confirmation request.  Reply to it, and you're on.

If you'd like a group address subscribed, send email in a slightly
different form.  For example, would subscribe like this:

The confirmation will be sent to, and anybody who
receives that email may reply to it.

This list is moderated and will probably only have one email per month
sent to it.  Last month there would have been two: action taken at the
board meeting, and our position paper on the W3C patent policy.

I tried announcing the list by sending mail to the list, but nobody
had yet subscribed and so that didn't work very well.  So I'm sending
it to you.
