Nau Mai, Haere Mai ki te whanau Koha. Hello and Welcome to the Koha
This is just a brief email to help you make the most of the community,
and the community make the most of you.
The best thing you can do to start is to introduce yourself. A brief
email to this mailing list saying who you are and what you want to do
is a great way to do that.
This is the general discussion list for librarians and others
interested in the Koha FOSS (free & open-source software) LMS/ILS
(library management system/integrated library system) and related
activities. It is a companion to other email lists (see
<http://lists.koha.org/>) that discuss future development or aspects
of the application.
Before posting to the list, it's always good to read/search through
the mailing list archive <http://dir.gmane.org/gmane.comp.misc.koha>
and the manual and FAQs <http://koha.org/documentation> for answers to
Please feel free to use this list for announcements, questions and
discussions on relevant topics, and please try to keep it positive and
polite. Pro-free-software LMS/ILS news is welcome. Debating
definitions of “free” is not.
Please send plain text emails and if you opt for the digest, change
the subject line when you reply (as described at the top of the
digest). In general, try to keep subject lines accurate and try to
write the sort of message that you'd be happy if it appeared on the
letters page of a national newspaper or magazine. Other useful
netiquette guidelines can be found in Internet RFC 1855
Emails from non-subscribers (and other emails held for review) will
usually be sent to this list in a batch once a day.
Websites and bloggers may find the gmane archive
<http://dir.gmane.org/gmane.comp.misc.koha> more useful for linking,
because its comment system is open to all.
