Re: Updating mailing list links on


I have a little list, here:

I've even created a tab per locale for convenience. (If you can't access 
the spreadsheet, email me, and I'll send you a list of pages to be 
updated for your locale.)

I've been waiting to share this because I'm waiting for Chris's updates 
to the CommunityBox and TopicBox macros to go into production. As far as 
I can tell, they haven't yet. A lot of the pages just need those macros
