People can request access to the mailing list. To be accepted for membership, two existing list members (at least one of which from a different organisation than that of the applicant) must express support for the inclusion.
XMPP chat room
Members of the FOG mailing list may also join the FOG XMPP multi-user chat, which is operated under the same rules as the mailing list (see above). To get your JabberID authorized for the XMPP MUC send it to
fog-request at lists.refeds.org, from the email address you're subscribed with to the FOG mailing list.
Participants must be voted in on an individual basis (except eduGAIN SG members, see below). REFEDS tracks the organisations represented on the FOG list.
By agreement with the eduGAIN Operations Team and the FOG membership active members of the eduGAIN Steering Group do not need to be voted on.
