while migrating the old wiki into a new wiki (that is at the moment at
http://cryptoparty.in) it has been suggested via IRC to setup an
info at cryptoparty.* email address, to allow for easy inquiries to our

However, as 
- this existing mailing list has a public archive, 
- this list currently requires to be subscribed in order to post,
we believe that people, who send an inquiry to an info at cryptoparty.*
email address, should be shielded from having their inquiry be stored in
a public archive immediately and we are considering to introduce a
separate mailing list.

The proposal is to introduce a new and separate

and we'd like to ask for your objections.

If there aren't any objections after 2 days, we'd go ahead with setting

We'll also setup an automatic responder on the admin mailing list, which
will explain that the public mailing list exists, how to find it, that
it has a public archive, and that everyone is strongly encouraged to
rather post to the public list.

This isn't an attempt for a private discussion list, it is just to
provide a contact for "normal people", as the whole topic got so
up-to-date these days. We intend to continue to discuss all
organizational matters in public.

Looking forward to your feedback.
