Our lists

Cross-posting (posting to multiple lists)

We prefer that messages are only posted to a single mailing list. Please see the list above to figure out which list is appropriate for your message and send to that one list only.

There are only a few situations when cross-posting is appropriate, and these cases are largely limited to list admins and the coordinators who may need to move discussions or make other important announcements that affect multiple lists.

Digest Versions

If you want digest versions of the lists, indicate this when you subscribe, or modify your subscription configuration later.


A quick note for people who are using "you cannot send me mail unless you are whitelisted" spam filters: if you subscribe to the linuxchix lists, you must whitelist the lists yourself. Sorry, but the admins are busy people and challenge-response email can take a long time to make work on our end. The admins will not reply to any "please jump through these hoops to be whitelisted" mails. Such messages will be treated as bounces, and if we get enough of them, we will unsubscribe you, like any other bouncing address.


Linuxchix has been on three hosts. Thanks to Terri Oda, the archives have been merged, so all posts starting from September 1999 are available. Go to each mailing lists' web page (linked to above) to view the archives. Some lists are not archived, and some lists' archives are only available to members. Archiving on other sites is not permitted.
