Migrate Alpine mailing lists to lists.sr.ht
I want to outline the steps needed to migrate our current lists server to a new server by using the lists software provided by sr.ht.
This is with help from @sircmpwn
The current status can be found here: http://lists.alpinelinux.org/alpine-infra/0267.html
There is currently a list of items that still need to be done:
x configure & import archives for alpine/announce x generate redirects for announce x import subscribers for announce x training on user invites - configure & import archives for any sensitive lists - freshen other lists (now outdated) archives - generate redirects for remaining lists - import subscribers for remaining lists - update DNS to change lists2.a.o -> lists.a.o - update postfix on smtp.a.o (is that what it's called?) - update nginx config on listserv (lists2 -> lists, by renaming the file in /etc/nginx/conf.d and updating the server_name directive therein) - update /etc/sr.ht/config.ini (lists2 -> lists) - reload the services (DNS server, postfix, nginx, lists.sr.ht) [ migration complete, new lists are now live] - import emails which came in during the migration process, if any
