There are several mailing lists used internally by staff. Append
@ocf.berkeley.edu to the end of each mailing list.
All staffers are automatically added to the following two mailing lists:
staff: For staff announcements, such as meeting times and events.
wheel: For technical discussion among all staff
Staffers can also choose to be further added to the following mailing lists. Technical Managers are required to join them:
rt: Emails sent to Request Tracker are copied to this mailing list. If you are on the
rtmailing list, you can reply to RT tickets from your email. You are highly encouraged to join this mailing list even if you're not root staff.
root: Miscellaneous messages from system daemons are sent here:
This mailing list gets a median of ~10 messages every day, although on some days it can get a lot more.
puppet: Error messages from puppet runs go here. This list tends to be very noisy.
mon: Monitoring alerts are sent here:
extcomm: A compilation of technical mailing lists for upstream projects and projects we mirror.
On the administrative side, the
officers mailing list receives emails related
to OCF administrivia. Cabinet members are expected to be on this mailing list,
and any other staffer can audit it as well.
Operations Staff are added to the
opstaff mailing list.
There are also some special purpose mailing lists:
email@example.com (ocf.io/announce): we add emails from
Calapalooza tabling to this mailing list, and send out announcements about
staff meetings here. We use a Berkeley mailing list here to let non-OCF
members sign up for it.
This mailing list should be cleared every fall.
