Mailing List discussions

Policy decisions surrounding HPR are taken by the community as a whole. This discussion takes place on the Mail List which is open to all HPR listeners and contributors. The discussions are open and available in the archives run externally by Gmane (see below) and on the HPR server under Mailman.

Note: since the summer of 2016 Gmane has changed location and is currently being reestablished. At the moment the HPR archive is not available there.

The threaded discussions this month can be found here:

  • Podcast Awards

    The Podcast Awards Ceremony is at 5pm PST on September 30th 2017. That is the day on which this HPR episode is being recorded, and it is also International Podcast Day!

    Again this year, HPR is a contender for the Technology Category.

  • FOSDEM 2018

    For the upcoming FOSDEM 2018 we have applied for a Podcaster's Table where a range of technical podcasts (including HPR) will be promoted. We have collected notes of interest from a wide range of podcasts, and some representatives will hopefully be able to join us as we run this table.

    We are hoping that this application will be approved by the FOSDEM administrators.

  • Website issues

    Over the past month the HPR website has been very slow at times, or has been so overloaded that it has effectively been unavailable. This has been caused by various web robots which have been scanning the site for long periods in a very inefficient way.

    We are aware of this and Josh has been taking remedial action. However, because these robots are not behaving in a standard way, the range of preventative action is limited without purchasing more sophisticated tools.

    For the moment we are monitoring the situation.


    Just a reminder: HPR's webhosting service and behind the scenes facilities are provided free of charge by Josh Knapp of
