I am requesting a mailing list named:




which would probably be hosted as


The Gopher project is a loose community surrounding the Internet Gopher
(UMN Gopher) protocol, which dates back to the early 1990s.  In Debian,
packages such as pygopherd, curl, forg, etc. are part of this project.
Other Open Source clients and servers exist as well, which are not
packaged up in Debian.  Additionally, efforts exist for archiving and
preserving this slice of Internet history.

This mailing list has been hosted on Alioth at
for some time, and prior to that, was hosted on my personal server.  The
mailing list has existed and remained active for 17 years.

Short description:

Internet Gopher projects and discussion

Long description:

Development, user support, and historical preservation relating to the
Internet Gopher protocol.
