Below is an overview of the GPII mailing lists. These are public and free for anyone to join. They are topic oriented lists and should be used for day to day communication, discussions, announcements and technical jibber jabber.
For confidential information, project management and internal announcements, please use the other means (For the Cloud4All project, use the SP lists).

As mentioned in a previous mail: Ad-hoc lists can be created for heavy discussions to offload a topic list. It should be clear what topic list the ad-hoc list is a sub-topic of. Creation of ad-hoc lists should be reported on main topic list and once the ad-hoc list is done, its conclusions should be reported back to the main topic list. Google groups can be used, or the creation of an @lists.gpii.net list can be requested from Kasper Markus (Raising The Floor) or Colin Clark (IDRC).
