Anyone who’s been around on IRC knows that life as a system administrator at the Mozilla Foundation is pretty darn busy. It’s definitely more than a one person job, and now we can finally do something about it :) Think you’ve got what it takes to be a part of the Mozilla sysadmin team? I could use the help! :) Here’s the job posting.

Glad to have everyone (mostly) healthy again

The flu is going around, and pretty much everyone in my family has had it over the last week and a half. My turn was over this last weekend, and I spent most of Sunday sleeping, and have been fighting off headaches and sore throats for the last two days. It seems to be trailing off finally.

Changing the domain for mailing lists

One of the projects that we’ve been discussing for a while is to move the mailing lists on to a separate domain name, such as The primary intent of this is to be able to use stricter anti-spam controls on it than we use on the personal and role addresses, since the moderation queues are constantly filled with spam messages that the list moderators can’t keep up with.

It ocurred to me the other day that the news hierarchy changing, and the corresponding changes to list names going with it, would be the perfect opportunity to kill this off with minimal disruption. Since many of the list names will be changing anyway, we can change the domain name at the same time without any additional disruption.

Polvi is looking into it to see if we can be ready to do that when the time comes to throw the switch.
