Hi everyone,

As you may have read in Council Minutes over the last few months, we 
have been working on a Mailing List policy. The intent of the policy is 
to foster open dialogue and discussion on relevant forums, while 
providing a safe space free from undesired behaviours such as personal 
attack and 'flaming'. The draft policy has now been reviewed on the 
policies mailing list [1]. Council recently approved the draft Mailing 
List policy, and it is subsequently in effect.

Please take a few moments to familiarise yourself with the policy;

If you would like to propose amendments to the policy, the best place to 
discuss amendments is the policies mailing list, and changes can be 
proposed openly via GitHub.

I'd like to take the opportunity to thank contributors to the policy, in 
particular fellow Council members Francois Marier and Hugh Blemings, and 
the wider community in particular Tony Breeds, Tim Ansell and Tennessee

As always your feedback is warmly welcomed,

With kind regards,
