Will the Last One to Leave Please Turn Off the Lights?

Sad day (via Jason Scott):

On Friday, January 17th, 2014 lists.apple.com will be retired.

List owners are encouraged to move their conversations to http://devforums.apple.com (for developers), http://discussions.apple.com (for users) or create an “Open community” group (via [redacted]). To facilitate this transition, we plan to make the non-confidential Apple Developer Forums readable by all Registered Apple Developers (i.e. the free membership level).

I’m a subscriber to a few Apple-hosted mailing lists, including their security announcement list. It’s been clear for a while that traffic has reached basically zero. The happy byproduct of this is that the Dev Forums will be opened up to a much wider audience — something which, arguably, should have happened long ago.
