This is planned to happen "soon", at which time I'll send an email to the list:


As part of Amar's great work in setting up Buildbot's dedicated infrastructure, it's time to transition away from SourceForge mailing lists and over to our own hosted lists.

So, as of <<WHEN?>> this list's address will become users@…, and at that time buildbot-devel@… will no longer work. You will receive a subscription email from the new list, and should update your address book appropriately.

We have a bunch of other lists, too, as seen on Buildbot-devel has gotten a bit over-used, both for discussion among users and for development traffic. For folks involved in contributing to or developing Buildbot, I'd point especially to devel@….

Folks not interested in the day-to-day, but interested in announcements about new releases, subscribe to announce@….

We'll be importing the archives for buildbot-devel to the new users@ list, so they will remain searchable both on and on the external mirrors (gmane, etc.).
