I want to publicise Linux (sorry folks, not just BLAG, fine as that distro may be) to mom-and-pop firms and individuals here in Brixton, London.
At the moment, the address listed for the Brixton Linux User Group is email@example.com
. If you email that address you get directed to the firstname.lastname@example.org
But, something tells me that the BLAG mailing list is not quite the right list to use for general linux purposes. BLAG's about BLAG, right? I mean, it's not really the place to ask about using GNUCash to do one's books.
Of course I don't want to cut off the flow of new members to the blag list, so I'd want to make sure people enquiring about a mailing list for Brixton Linux Users would still find out about BLAG, maybe by mentioning BLAG in the initial auto-response. But I do feel the need for the resource of a linux mailing list for general local users. I guess I'm volunteering to maintain the list as well.
Perhaps I'm being a little over cautious, but it seemed to me to be only polite to float the idea here, to get any feedback. I've written to jeff (at blag) and alan (at communitytechnology) to make sure they know I've floated the idea for discussion.
