I got the email included below out of the blue. I don't know what it is,
who sends it to me direct (not to a list), or why.
I don't understand, either, what it is talking about. Etherpad? What is
but there are no unsubscribe headers. No "To:" header either. I don't
remember having subscribed to it, and it doesn't come from the openSUSE
mail list server.
It also says to write to admin(a)opensuse.org for more info - but that
address is for opening tickets. An email to that will open a new ticket.

Subject: [openSUSE admin] News: Playing with Etherpad-lite
Playing with Etherpad-lite
When updating to the latest etherpad-lite version 1.8.7 (including quite some bug fixes), we also revisuted the currently installed plugins and updated them to their latest version as well, as usual.
To get some impressions about the usage of our Etherpad instance, we also enabled the [ether-o-meter](https://www.npmjs.com/package/ep_ether-o-meter) plugin now, which is now producing some nice live graphs and statistics here: https://etherpad.opensuse.org/metrics
We also enabled some additional styles now and hope this makes the usage of Etherpad even more fun and productive for you. If you want to have some more modules enabled (or just want to say "hello"), feel free to contact us! Either via an Email to admin(a)opensuse.org or by reaching out for us at irc.opensuse.org channel #opensuse-admin.

Because I am a little fed up with these dreary GDPR requests for
removing stuff from our list archives (which is not easy), I took a
closer look at the GDPR wrt email archiving.
Take a look at chapter 2, article 5, section 1, paragraph (b) of the
Personal data shall be:
- processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to
the data subject (‘lawfulness, fairness and transparency’);
collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not
further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes;
further processing for archiving purposes in the public interest,
scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes
shall, in accordance with Article 89(1), not be considered to be
incompatible with the initial purposes (‘purpose limitation’);
In my layman's view, our mailing list archives are in full compliance
with the above, specifically the last sentence beginning "further
processing for archiving purposes in the public interest ..."
I don't know if we have an issue of "pseudonymisation" for "data
minimisation" purposes, which I guess could mean replacing a name
with "GDPR redacted". I just have trouble seeing how my name in a text
is an example of keeping my "personal data".

*Please forward to anyone potentially interested*
In the wake of the post survey discussions, a bunch of volunteers have
risen to the challenges of improving diversity, knowledge transfer and
cross-community bonds: https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Newscom
We feel like a bi-weekly newsletter might work for that, to be served on
our web platforms and shipped in the form of a mobile screen friendly
newsletter, available in the most spoken languages in the community (for
starters: Spanish, Indonesian, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian) and
broadcast across all information channels available.
Unlike its glorious ancestor
(https://en.opensuse.org/Archive:Weekly_news_99) the newsletter will
have both a cultural and a technical facet. You'll learn more about the
former in our upcoming call for participants, but I'd like to ask you
something about the latter: would some of you -- I have in mind
contributors to 101.opensuse.org, package maintainers and Heroes -- be
interested in, respectively:
- being advertised in our first issue (to fix ideas: we could write an
article about 101.opensuse.org and encourage people from these
communities to participate as either maintainers, mentors or mentees)
- having their package spotlit, simply to make it more visible or
attract new maintainers
- highlight key areas in our infrastructure, platforms and activities
that could benefit from more volunteers.
Do let us know!
