Mirroring Whonix blog posts to whonix-devel mailing list is broken. (Since post2email wordpress plugin has broken and been abandoned.)
This was part of the grander mechanism for users to stay tuned.
Should we introduce a Whonix newsletter?
Perhaps the new Whonix website should include an easy sign-up formula? Such as:
[input field] subscribe | unsubscribe
Maybe not that hard to implement. We already have a whonix-devel / whonix-user mailing list subscribe button on the Whonix mailing list wiki page. It’s implemented using mediawiki extension mailman, which has very few lines of code.
Should the news letter be implemented in form of a public mailing list? Should we use existing whonix-users or whonix-devel mailing list? Should it be an open or closed mailing list? Open meaning, the users can reply, talk to each other, but also get many mails. Closed would mean, that users would read sent by Whonix admins only.
Proposed purpose of the newsletter:
- calls for testing
- new Whonix releases notifications
- summary notification of new Whonix blog posts
