Mailing lists are used for some of the FlightGear community's communications, in particular among the core developers, who are working on the flight simulator itself.
Some questions are better asked on the mailing list instead of the forum. You do not strictly have to be a core developer to subscribe and/or post to the mailing lists.
The mailing lists
Some of the lists are for discussions while some only contain announcements.
|FlightGear-Devel||Activefirstname.lastname@example.org||The most active list. Where you can contact mostly core developers.|
|FlightGearemail@example.com||Announces all commits to some of the repositories.|
|FlightGear-Usersfirstname.lastname@example.org||Mostly replaced by the forum these days.|
|FlightGear-Newsletter||archive||subscribe||Receive an email when a new edition is published.|
Posting to the mailing lists without subscribing
Subscribing is not strictly necessary to send emails.
Your post may be significantly delayed if you are not subscribed though. E-mails from addresses which are not subscribed to the list are held for moderator approval before they are posted.
Report bugs to the issue tracker
You may have to register a SourceForge account first.
