Mailing lists

OASIS hosts a wide variety of mailing lists to enable the work of our members and encourage public input. These mailing lists represent a unique knowledge base produced through collaborative effort. All OASIS mailing lists are archived online, and the vast majority are viewable by the public.


OASIS staff members use these pages to write informally about issues related to their work. (Opinions expressed are those of the individual.)
