Following-up on the RFC I sent previously (see below) and the consensus
that emerged from it on point 1, we are about to proceed with the merge
of the ubuntu-ec2 mailing list into the ubuntu-cloud mailing list.  This
means that from tomorrow :

 * all the subscribers of ubuntu-ec2 will be unsubscribed from it and
subscribed to the ubuntu-cloud mailing list.

 * the archives of the ubuntu-ec2 mailing will remain available, but the
list will be deactivated

If you are a member of the ubuntu-ec2 mailing list, get ready to update
your rules tomorrow if you have any.
If you are a member of the ubuntu-cloud mailing list, you should not
notice any changes.

For a while, emails sent to the ubuntu-ec2 mailing list will be
redirected to the ubuntu-cloud mailing list.

Thanks a lot,
