All,

This mozilla.dev.security.policy mailing list has been running on
ancient custom-patched mailman software since the early Mozilla days. As
many of you are aware, there are limitations and sometimes loss of data
with the old configuration, so we are migrating this list to be hosted
as a well-supported email-based Google Group under Mozilla's Google
Workspace (formerly GSuite) account.

Currently this forum is accessed as follows:
- Mailing List: dev-secur...@lists.mozilla.org
- Newsgroup: mozilla.dev.security.policy
- Web: https://groups.google.com/g/mozilla.dev.security.policy
This list will be archived and changed to read-only on April 3, after
which we will continue our conversations in the new list.

After the move, the access points will change to:
- Mailing List: dev-secur...@mozilla.org
-- dev-secur...@lists.mozilla.org will automatically forward
to the new mailing list
- Group Name: dev-security-policy
- Web: https://groups.google.com/a/mozilla.org/g/dev-security-policy
Note: Newsgroup access is deprecated and will no longer be an access point.

In the next week we will pre-populate the new group’s members list with
the active users who subscribed to mozilla.dev.security.policy via
lists.mozilla.org, and you will begin to receive email from the new
dev-security-policy group as soon as messages are posted to it. You will
then be able to update your user settings and frequency of email
messages via groups.google.com, or you can send an email to me and Ben
to request that we update your settings in this new group.

For mozilla.dev.security.policy we do not have visibility into
subscribers from NNTP or Google Groups, so if you do not receive
notifications from the new group, you may subscribe by sending email to
dev-security-p...@mozilla.org or to me or Ben. This new
group, dev-security-policy, is also public-facing via the web interface
so you only need to subscribe to the new group if you intend to post
messages or if you want to receive group conversations via email.

I will post another message here in mozilla.dev.security.policy when the
new group is ready to use. At that point, we will archive this
mozilla.dev.security.policy group such that no one will be able to post
to this old group. Google has stated that data in this old group and the
URLs to messages within this old group will remain as-is. From then on
messages sent to dev-secur...@lists.mozilla.org will be
automatically forwarded to dev-secur...@mozilla.org.

Thanks,
Kathleen

All,

I posted the first message to the new group, with subject "WELCOME to
dev-security-policy".

If you do not receive the welcome message to the new group, you can
subscribe to it by sending an email to
You can update your user settings and frequency of email messages via
groups.google.com, or you can send an email to me and Ben to request
that we update your settings in this new group.
