To add another immodest
proposal from some one who actually reads but rarely "uses" the
mailing list actively would be to actually improve the search of
the archives and make it more visible on the website to new
The site search
seems to be broken as it points to lists.cs.wisc.edu but google indexes "https://www-auth.cs.wisc.edu/lists/htcondor-users/"
for some reason.
Example searching "walltime": https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=walltime+site%3Alists.cs.wisc.edu%2Farchive%2Fhtcondor-users%2F
gives me only : https://lists.cs.wisc.edu/archive/htcondor-users/2011-April/msg00228.shtml
But there is als e.g. https://www-auth.cs.wisc.edu/lists/htcondor-users/2020-July/msg00120.shtml
which can be found via https://www.google.com/search?q=walltime+site%3Awww-auth.cs.wisc.edu%2Flists%2Fhtcondor-users%2F
If this is fixed also new users will value the mailing list much more IMHO...
Thank you for all the great ressources btw and the help provided via this list!!
My final 2 cents: I principally, however,
agree that particularly new users feel a bit intimidated
writing to an old school public mailing list. We had exactly
this case a week ago, that I had to really convince someone to
even consider posting to this list.
I "grew up" reading FreeBSD Mailing lists,
so you do not have to convince me. Actually it might be good
promote stackoverflow on the website for this generation:
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/condor . I found
the level here much lower (maybe even too low in places). I
might be a really good complement to this great mailing list.
It would be actually also great to see cross-posts from the
mailing-list and vice-versa.
Again so many thanks for providing so much
valuable ressources here and responding so fast to questions.

I am not in charge of any aspect of HTCondor and no one from CHTC has given me any indication they plan to deprecate the user-list.
I just personally find the system antiquated and intimidating for new members of the community. Given the desire to grow dHTC outside it's usual confines, I believe shifting user-feedback to a forum would lower the bar to entry. Also these systems do enable you to get the "most recent posts" in email list form if you still want that.
But again, this was just an immodest proposal by one Uni RSE in Southwest England and nothing more.
