Incubator-wide Mailing Lists

general at

This is where general and public discussion of the Incubator takes place.

cvs at

This is the Incubator's "commits" list, named "cvs" for historical reasons. Changes made to the Incubator codebase and website and the Incubator wiki trigger automatic notifications to this list. Replies go to the general list.

Podling Mailing Lists

Each podling under incubation has its own mailing lists, which should be easily discovered via the podling website or via the podling status pages. These are the right place to get involved with a particular project or to ask project specific questions. They form the public record of the development of the project. All lists are archived.

Foundation-wide Mailing Lists

Many ASF-wide lists will also be of interest to Incubator participants. The legal discussion, infrastructure, and community lists are especially germane for PPMC members and release managers trying to develop their knowledge and stay current.
