Mailing lists

Best practice

When beginning a new discussion on the mailinglists, except for the wiki@ mailinglist, prepend your subject with the project name you are referring to. This makes it easier for project maintainers to answer your questions.

Here is an example:

Subject: [st] X not working

If you are not referring to any project of course use whatever subject you like.

Mailing list commands

Send a mail from your (not yet) subscribed email address to one of the following addresses to perform the described action.

After both the subscribe and unsubscribe command, a confirmation email will be sent to you (so look into your spam bin!)

Note, replace MAILHOST with suckless.org

dev@suckless.org

hackers@suckless.org

When sending a patch use the following commands:

cd $project
git send-email --subject-prefix="$(basename $(pwd))][PATCH" \
    --to hackers@suckless.org -1

This will send the last commit of the repository to the mailinglist adding a prefix to the subject which includes the appropriate project name. This allows easier referencing and filtering of the e-mails for the maintainers subscribed to hackers@.

Be sure to have setup your sender address in git and be subscribed to the mailinglist so you can see eventual comments on your patches.
