MAILING-LIST: Linux mailing lists

Feb 14, 1999, 02:26 (0 Talkback[s])

As posted to C.O.L.A.

In the last few months, the traffic on the linux-kernel list
has been unbearably high, to the level of becoming a real
distraction in debugging the kernel.
In order to alleviate this problem and to give the 'off-topic
folks' their own home, 3 new mailing lists have been created:

-- kernel-doc@nl.linux.org:
  Writing, proof-reading and discussing the kernel
  documentation. This is also where newbies should
  go if they can't find the documentation (not being
  able to find documentation is, after all, a lack
  of documentation).
-- linux-future@nl.linux.org:
  Long-term OS design, feature drooling and generic
  OS science fiction. Everyone is welcome to think
  about the future of the Linux system (and the kernel
  in particular). Discussions should only move to
  linux-kernel as soon as we reach the debugging stage.
-- linux-legal@nl.linux.org:
  GPL, BSD, Artistic, LGPL, MPL, QPL, PD, etc...
  It's a jungle out there, a legal jungle. Make sure
  you (and others) don't get lost in it. Help map out
  the legal jungle or find out your own (in)abilities
  and legal risks.
You can subscribe to any one of those lists by sending a message
to:
  <majordomo@nl.linux.org>
with a message body of:
  "subscribe 

If you have any questions, feel free to write to me:
