My apologies for letting this slide. I got swamped and your message
got buried in my Inbox.
I've just created both the gui-sig and matrix-sig mailing lists on
python.org. They essentially mirror the existing meta-sig list,
except that I've made you (firstname.lastname@example.org) the owner of both lists.
Although it appears you don't currently have an account on python.org,
I'm not opposed to giving you one. Let's talk out of band about this.
Give me a call (703-620-8990) and I'll also give you the lists'
passwords so you can do remote administrivia with the lists.
As I mentioned in my meta-sig postings (see the archives under
email@example.com), messages go to <topic>-firstname.lastname@example.org
and administrivia (adds, deletes, md commands) go to
<topic>-email@example.com, where <topic> here is `gui' or
`matrix'. I've put a boilerplate .config, .info, and .passwd file in
place for both lists, though I'm sure you'll want to edit the
Both lists are archived, and can be retrieved with the md `file'
command sent to the list's administrivia account. Both lists
currently have empty subscription lists, so you'll have to add even
yourself. Just send the message `subscribe' in the *body* of your
message to <topic>-firstname.lastname@example.org.
That's everything I can think of. If you have any problems, you can
contact me directly and we'll iron out the problems.
Again, sorry for the delay.
