XZ mailing lists
The XZ related mailing lists are described below. Note that you are welcome to also use IRC (#tukaani on Freenode) or email Lasse Collin directly. See contact information for details.
There is also a forum for XZ Utils and LZMA Utils on Sourceforge. Depending on how popular the xz-devel mailing list becomes, the forum might get dropped in the future.
xz-devel is for general discussion about XZ Utils, XZ Embedded, XZ in Java, the .xz file format, LZMA Utils, and related topics.
You can subscribe to the xz-devel mailing list by sending the line subscribe xz-devel in the message body (subject is ignored) to majordomo at tukaani dot org. You should then get an email that asks you to send another email to confirm the subscription. Majordomo should reply with Succeeded. If you have problems, make sure that there are no leading spaces on the "auth" line when replying to the first message (Majordomo is picky).
Unsubscribing is done by sending unsubscribe xz-devel in the message body.
Subscribers can post to the list by sending email to xz-devel at tukaani dot org.
- You must subscribe to the list to be able to post. This is to minimize spam.
- Don't CC the sender when replying to a message.
- Write in English.
- Use plain text (no HTML email). Reasonable use of non-ASCII characters e.g. in UTF-8 with quoted-printable or base64 encoding is OK.
- Don't top-post.
- Patches should preferably be included inline in the message, not as attachments. This is not a strict rule so use your brains. E.g. if you are sending a completely new file like a new translation (a .po file), sending it as an attachment is more convenient for all of us. Tiny binary files (a few kilobytes at most) are OK if they are needed for testing something.
xz-announce is for release announcements of XZ Utils. This is a very low volume list with only a couple of messages per year. Messages sent to this list are sent also to xz-devel, so there's no need to subscribe to both lists.
