Description Mike.lifeguard 2009-03-07 23:42:18 UTC
We need a centralized way to notify people about the creation of new wikis. For example, toolserver admins need to know to create view for the database, and CVN people need to know so the wiki can be added to monitoring systems. Currently the only way to track such things is to watch the individual bugs, which is of course imperfect. Probably this mailing list should be for announcements only - no discussion.

DaBPunkt> I'm sure that the wm-root use a kind of script for the wiki-creation. should notz be so hard to let it send an email to us

That seems to be true, according to
Comment 2 Casey Brown 2009-07-27 23:12:43 UTC
This would be extremely useful for a number of different groups (and just interested parties).  Brion, can you comment on whether or not this is doable (or are you guys willing to do it?)?
Comment 3 Cary Bass 2010-06-16 23:18:02 UTC
Sorry I haven't followed up on this, but I think I understand the request better.  This is a one-way list?  Who would like to moderate it?
Comment 4 Casey Brown 2010-06-16 23:30:33 UTC
It doesn't really matter, I'm sure Mike, Alex, and I could help moderate.

Comment 5 p858snake 2010-06-17 01:07:48 UTC
Could we just spam the creation notices to Announce-l instead of a separate list?
Comment 6 Cary Bass 2010-07-15 22:37:16 UTC
List newprojects created.

Thanks, Cary. Now we just have to convince them to send emails to it; see bug 24398 :D
