[SAC] Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Job Postings / Job Wanted

Landon, hi
I guess that moderation should be made through mailman system
am I wrong?

"The list moderators have more limited permissions; they are not able to change any list configuration variable, but they are allowed to tend to pending administration requests, including approving or rejecting held subscription requests, and disposing of held postings. Of course, the list administrators can also tend to pending requests."

I think we should ask SAC (in CC) to kindly make a mailing list and set our 3 e-mail addresses as moderators.

can this mail be considered a request to SAC?
otherwise I'll do it via Trac

I think we've got three people to moderate a mailing list. I think we
should move forward with that.

I'll tackle the wiki page if there are no objections. People interested
in posting their job and/or resume on the wiki page could contact me
directly at sunburned.surveyor@gmail.com.

Let me know if there are any objections to this. If there are no
objections, then I will set up the wiki pages.

I've no interest in maintaining a wiki page -- but I'd be happy to own
the occasional (biweekly) summary emails pointing to the wiki.

Pick a mailing list -- either Discuss or a new one -- and I

Who were these 'at least two volunteers'?


Is Michael right that you were willing to participate as an "OSGeo Jobs"
moderator of some sort?

Michael / Landon,

Assuming so, I'd like as much as possible to turn this topic over to the
two of you to pursue. I'm happy to prepare a mailing list for you when
you want me to.

I'd appreciate your contributing to:

I love Michael's idea of the jobs moderators summarizing positions to the
discuss list periodically. I'd like to think every two weeks would be
managable, but given enough currency to make it useful.

You might find it helpful to write up some brief notes on what you would
do as moderators. Something roughly akin to what we did for the News
Editors at:

That makes it easier for folks to know what you are doing, and easier to
"hand off" the job to someone new after a while.

I think it would be prudent to consider the jobs mailing list and associated
job finding resources an activity of the web committee though that distinction
is likely not too important most of the time. But if we want to get approval
for a plan, that could be the place. And it will be the web committee that
provides our web presence once we move onto the main site.
