Please could you create a mailing list for the Wikimedia Research Network; until
now we have been operating with a large CC list, but very infrequently because
of the unmanagability of such a solution.
Note that wiki-research-l is /not/ appropriate (it is explicitly for research
conducted outside the auspices of the WRN).
Is this a public or private list? What's its purpose?
It's a mailing list for discussion of the Wikimedia Research Network (see the
URL). Isn't the list admin (who would be James F.) able to set whether it is a
public or private list?

Public (it would mainly be an announce list, but with some back-and-forth every
now and then). If you really insist, I can set up my own mailing list
personally, but that has the disadvantage of being dependent on me, and less
Just wondering how to set it up and who to put on it. :)
I now have an admin, but no name requested for the list...

How about research-network-l? I know it doesn't have "wiki" as a sub-string, but
I think we can live just this once. ;-)
And you're the first person to put onto the list - I'm looking forward to all
the work you're going to be doing as a member of the Research Network, in your
Copious Free Time(tm) ;-D
True story: when I was a wee child I thought "copious" meant "not very much", since
I only ever heard it used in the sarcastic phrase "copious spare time".
