Re: Announcement: this mailing list will be retired by the end of Oct 2022

As soon as the list has been archived (today, tomorrow) when a new email is sent to the old list it'll bounce back, yes, we can add an alias to the new location although I'm not a particular fan of landing aliases between lists living on different infrastructures as it gives the idea the list has never been retired and it's still alive although that is not true and that can confuse participants in the long run. It's important wiki pages and other references are updated to reflect this particular migration and former members are invited (which you did already) to participate on the new list.

Hi Andrea,

It is done:

I think the old list can be shut down. What will happen when sending an
email to the old list? Will a bounce message be sent back? Can it link
to the new place?

That was all that's needed. Invitations are sent.
