comp.std.announce (CSA) is a newsgroup for publishing announcements of new and/or modified internet standards and practices, such as RFCs, ISO standards, web standards, and so forth. CSA is a robo-moderated forum, controlled by a moderation 'bot that automatically approves messages from a set whitelist of mailing lists. HOW TO POST =========== comp.std.announce is set up with the assumption that it will publish the messages from major public announcement mailing lists. Currently the following lists are being mirrored in comp.std.announce: W3C Weekly News http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-announce/ rfc-dist http://mailman.rfc-editor.org/mailman/listinfo/rfc-dist If you would like to add additional mailing lists to this contact Tim Skirvin (tskirvin@killfile.org). CURRENT MODERATION INFORMATION ============================== CSA is run by 'Robot Format Checker', a Verimod moderation bot written by Tim Skirvin and operated on killfile.org. All posts that go through the moderation 'bot are signed with pgpmoose. If a post does not have a cryptographically sound X-Auth header, then the post was not approved by Robot Format Checker, and will be shortly cancelled by another bot. Tim Skirvin and Markus Kuhn took over moderation duties for CSA in July 2006.
