[question] Re: [rda-biosharing-wg] IMPORTANT NOTICE: New Group mailing list

Dear Sara and Secretariat,
Many thanks for the changes and the notification. Can you please clarify (also to the WG members) if we/they need to register again to the new one. I guess and hope not, but imo it is not clear.

Kind regards

As Susanna indicated yesterday, I agreed to send an email to the group with some proposals for you to consider.

1. Name of the Recommendations

We understand why this has now changed to FAIRSharing, to reflect the expanded scope of the recommendation (undertaken under the FORCE11 banner), and the name of the registry.
