As some of you may have been aware we’ve been getting feedback about ways to improve the communication within the ROS community. People have been looking for ways to discover activity in the ROS community and at the same time are looking to be able to filter the content more actively.
Unfortunately using our current mailing lists these two efforts are somewhat contradictory so we’ve setup a discourse instance at http://discourse.ros.org
We have started moving the SIGs over gradually, and as we grow into the site we plan to
As such I’m asking that this SIG transition to using the discourse instance to communicate instead of the mailing list. We will work hard to keep the mailing lists going for a while for backwards compatibility.
So please take a moment to sign up for a discourse account and in your settings you can choose to be notified about everything, or filter for specific categories. The current settings support reply by email, but a new thread does currently require using the web interface.
I’ve turned off posting directly to the mailing list so that we don’t get bifurcated communications. Thanks for your patience and see you on discourse.ros.org.
