Technical discussions about the protocol and implementation should be carried out on the OAI-PMH or OAI-ORE groups. Open Access announcements and discussion should instead go to lists focused on OA (e.g. SOAF, BOAI, SPARC-IR, SCHOLCOMM). In order to keep traffic low, postings (such as conference announcements, software releases etc.) will be rejected unless they have specific OAI relevance.
