The HARC has decided to split out “swap” messages into their own mailing list on groups.io. A list has been set up so that anyone already subscribed to the main K8DAA group will be able to post by sending a message to
email@example.com. If you’d like to subscribe to the list to receive the messages by email, however, you’ll need to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
