Mailing List discussions

Policy decisions surrounding HPR are taken by the community as a whole. This discussion takes place on the Mail List which is open to all HPR listeners and contributors. The discussions are open and available in the archives run externally by Gmane (see below) and on the HPR server under Mailman.

Note: since the summer of 2016 Gmane has changed location and is currently being reestablished. At the moment the HPR archive is not available there.

Any other business

  • Podcrawl Glasgow 2017

    The annual Podcrawl Glasgow will take place on Saturday July 29th at 6pm, starting in The State Bar, Holland Street, Glasgow ... and going on to who knows where!

    See Kevie's blog for the details.

    We hope to see some HPR listeners and contributors there!

  • UK Table Kit

    From @timttmy:

    Could you mention on the community news that I still have the HPR table kit and if anyone needs it to let me know via the mailing list. Sadly I won't be able to make oggcamp this year and I'm a more than a little gutted as this will be the first time I've missed the event. I hope somebody can represent HPR this year but I've not heard any chatter of excitement about it on the interwebs from anyone yet.
