Mailman-Developers -- GNU Mailman developers


About Mailman-Developers
English (USA)

This list is for discussion of the Mailman mailing list management system. It is open to people interested in improving the usability of the system, including end users as well as mailing list managers and development coders.

There is a separate mailing list for people interested in discussion regarding configuring and using the system - mailman-users.

There is also an announce-only mailing list mailman-announce, and a mailing list for following the developers Bazaar checkins as they're issued, see mailman-checkins. The listinfo page includes (brief) instructions for hooking up to the Bazaar repository over the net, for read-only access to the active development tree.

If you want to report a bug in Mailman, scan previously reported bugs, submit patches, etc., please start with the Launchpad project page. You might also want to check out the Mailman home page.

You might want to start by reading the Mailman FAQ. Also check out the searchable archives.

We have set the mailman-developers list to moderate all new users because of a recent problem with some people subscribing to this list and then posting messages that belong elsewhere, often messages that belong on mailman-users instead.

Note that this list is closed to postings from non-subscribers. You must first subscribe and confirm, then you can post to the list.

Also note that all posts made to the list will be publicly archived.

In order to protect the integrity of the list archives, we do not routinely agree to remove or obscure posts that are in the archives. We only do this in exceptional circumstances such as if someone has posted personal/private information about someone else, or an obviously private e-mail has accidentally been posted to the list.

The Mailman Security Policy is detailed in FAQ 1.27.

Before posting any messages to this mailing list, please make sure that you have read and understood this policy.

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the Mailman-Developers Archives.
