About List Access

Most people will simply email the list address shown, after subscribing as explained below.

The "Newsgroup" links will work if you have a working newsreader configured and the group is available on your newsserver. If not, please ask your sysadmin or newsadmin or Internet Service Provider. We cannot support other people's newsservers, generally.

The "Archive" links are the primary archives for the lists. These are hosted on the same set of servers as the list.

An alternative archive for many of these lists are at GMANE but the names are not exact matches. You can also interact with the lists as newsgroups by using GMANE's servers, or read them as RSS feeds, or search them, or... see the GMANE home page for instructions.
