Mailing lists and IRC¶
Mailing list etiquette¶
Please consider the following before posting Emails to the lists:
- No posts with html.
- No cross posting.
- Change the subject when appropriate (meaning when the conversation topic has shifted to something other than the old subject line).
- Start threads with tags for tracking different kinds of subjects. So far we have the following for the dev list:

Project mailing lists¶
These are the mailing lists that have been established for this project. We haven't a distinguished mailing list for each of the sub-projects : if you have questions about Escimo, Mavibot or ApacheDS, for instance, you have to use the Directory Users or Developpers mailing list.
Subscribing to one of the existing mailing lists is only a matter of sending an empty mail (no subject, no content) to (mailing list name)-email@example.com. You can find the list of mailing list names in the table below. For instance, to subscribe to the dev mailing list, send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unsubscribing from one of the existing mailing lists is only a matter of sending an empty mail (no subject, no content) to (mailing list name)-email@example.com. You can find the list of mailing list names in the table below. For instance, to unsubscribe from the dev mailing list, send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
