Last year, I set up the
firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list.
It's been dormant since most project communication happens on Github, via issues and pull requests. It also has a spam/moderation problem, which is apparently common for mailing lists on Dreamhost.
So I'm closing the list and moving it to Zulip. If you're interested in the development of Oil, please sign up:
I sign in with Github, which is super easy. You should also be able to read messages via e-mail, without signing in.
I had written an explanation here, but this picture by Julia Evans is better.

oil-discuss@ mailing lists, and now we have the same
#oil-discuss Zulip streams.
(User interface note: my friend Eric didn't like the small fonts. Hit

#new membersstream. It may take a few minutes to get used to Zulip. One difference compared to Slack is that you need to click on a message to reply to it. This is more like GMail than IRC.
Again, here is where you sign up:
And here's a link to a specific thread:
NOTE: E-mails sent directly to me may get lost. Please start a new thread on Zulip instead! I'll be monitoring it closely.
