Current lists

We're currently providing two mailing lists with our hosts. More may be provided if they prove to be necessary. If you think a new mailing list should be generated, feel free to contact KOSH and suggest it yourself. If you are a newcomer to KOSH, click here for instructions on how to join our general mailing list. If you already know how to subscribe, you can use the links below.

Working groups

The idea is that most of the project work will be done on closed mailing lists. For each list, a scribe will create a weekly summary and post it, with the Working Group's blessing to the Working Group webpages. For these closed Working Groups, there will be a parallel open mailing list, where community members can discuss what the Working Group is doing, where it is going and start their own discussions. A scribe on each of the open mailing lists will create a weekly summary, posting it to the Working Group pages. The weekly summaries will also be read by the Working Group members. (Note: At the moment this idea is not realised.)

Some work, however, will be done by smaller PAD groups. These are less formal, temporary groups which report back as and when felt necessary by group representatives and the PAD organiser.
