I agree that PTFS appears to have a strange approach that looks like
coralling their users into a private discussion space.  In some ways
that's good, because it means users of the LL-specific forks aren't
confusing everyone on the community lists, but I guess it has more
drawbacks for potential users.

The co-op has an email list for co-op-specific announcements which I
feel wouldn't be appropriate here (upgrades, service notices, special
offers and so on), but I'll subscribe potential users on request.

Like most support companies I think, we encourage our users to
participate in the main koha-community discussions.  One of our
clients started the smaller UK-specific LIS-KOHA email list at
jiscmail but I think it's still vendor-neutral and open to all.
