erc-discuss renamed to emacs-erc

From: Amin Bandali
Subject: erc-discuss renamed to emacs-erc
Date: Fri, 06 Mar 2020 00:49:34 -0500
User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/26.3 (gnu/linux)

Update: the rename has been done, the erc-discuss list is now emacs-erc.
For more context, see the original announcement copied at the bottom.

At the time of writing this message, the old erc-discuss@ address is
currently set up as an alias, redirecting mail to the new emacs-erc@
address for the time being.  Please update your address books and/or
filters to use the new address instead.  If you notice any issues,
please don't hesitate to email me directly.

Going forward, emacs-erc will be the only active ERC mailing list, and
erc-announce and erc-commit are now officially retired.  As mentioned
previously, I will merge the member subscriptions from the now retired
lists into emacs-erc soon after posting this message.

The listinfo pages for erc-announce [0] and erc-commit [1] have been
updated, pointing the reader to emacs-erc [2].  The old erc-discuss
archives are preserved and continue to be available at [3].

[0]: https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/erc-announce
[1]: https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/erc-commit
[2]: https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/emacs-erc
[3]: https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/erc-discuss/

Shout out to Ian from the FSF tech team for taking care of the rename,
setting up redirects, and resolving minor issues that arose after the
rename.  Thanks Ian!

Happy hacking!
