This is a subscription service to be automatically notified by e-mail when topics change in this Common web. This is a convenient service, so you do not have to come back and check all the time if something has changed. To subscribe, please add a bullet with your Wiki Name in alphabetical order to this list:

Change Notices

If you subscribe to this list, you will receive notices if anything changes in this web. This is most useful if you want to monitor a specific web page.

Calendar Update emails

If you are receiving an email regarding the Calendar Update, it will say you should subscribe / unsubscribe using this topic. However, we use the standard mailing lists for distribution, and so you should subscribe/Unsubscribe using those lists. See more here: List Serve. These are currently sent out early Thursday morning and encompass the next two weeks.

# * list@ecdcweb.org : Calendar Update!

# * announce@ecdcweb.org : Calendar Update!

Unfortunately, the calendar entry is being sent out every day instead of once a week.

Contrary to the documentation, the program ignores any -news operand in the cron invocation.

The related cron entries are as follows:
5 1 * * 4 (cd /home/copswiki/www/w/bin; perl ../tools/mailnotify -news Common)
0 0 * * * (cd /home/copswiki/www/w/bin; perl ../tools/mailnotify -q)
The first line should be called once per week, on Thursday at 1:05 am, and should send out the news letters in the Common web. The second line should be called daily at midnight, and send out change notifications to the subscription list.

ADMIN INFO
Note: for Calendar Update transmission to occur, cron job must exist like this:
(cd /home/copswiki/www/w/bin; perl ../tools/mailnotify -news Common)
