We are using the ubuntu packages for both wordpress and mediaiki so they are receiving automatic updates.

For mediawiki we are using the ConfirmAccount extension

We're using a digitalocean droplet for hosting both the wordpress and mediawiki install.

We also have several personal forwarding addresses such as which go to people's personal accounts.

Migadu supports full mail accounts so we could set these personal addresses up so we can send from them as well, but currently we haven't used this feature.

This is all currently administered by Juul but several other people have admin access to the mailing list so they can add new people.
