Mailing lists

Mailing lists are the main way to get in touch with the NetBeans Community. Feel free to subscribe and participate.

Lists are managed with ezmlm, refer to ezmlm manual for useful help commands.

The mailing lists can also be subscribed to in digest form, so that you at most receive one e-mail per day. Digest form email addresses are the same as the email addresses below, substituting subscribe@ with digest-subscribe@ and substituting unsubscribe@ with digest-unsubscribe@.
