Inactive Mailing Lists

A number of lists created over time by the RIPE NCC have now become inactive. For historical reasons, we continue to publish archives of discussions that took place on these lists, even though they are now low (or no) traffic. The appearance of a list in this part of the site usually indicates it is closed, although on occasion, a list may be reactivated.
