Hi all,

I'm sending out a dual purpose message  to both inform the community of the
Evergreen web team list and to see if there is anyone interested in taking
a leadership role in getting the web team back on track again.

The web team was made up of a group of people who met regularly to discuss
and work on improvements for the evergreen-ils.org web site. The team also
has a mailing list where people can discuss significant changes they would
like to make to the web site. In general, people with wiki accounts or
Evergreen WordPress accounts make small changes to the web site without
checking in with the web team. However, larger changes often were posted to
the mailing list before they were made.

Details about the mailing list are available at

The web team has been defunct for a few years, not due to lack of interest,
but due to limited time.

I'm sending out this message to 1) encourage people with an interest in the
web site to sign up for the web team list (instructions are at the above
URL and 2) to see if anyone would be interested in taking on the role of
web team chair so that the group can start planning for the Evergreen web
site again.

Although there are many people who help keep the web site updated, the
regular team meetings were a good way to keep people thinking of the
mission of the site and improving it to better meet the needs of Evergreen

In particular, the Outreach Committee has been discussing ways to make the
site better for newcomers to the community. This is an improvement that I
think should be in the hands of the web team or, at a minimum, should be
done in conjunction with the web team.

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions!
