Mailing lists are a handy way to discuss problems, solutions, and requested features as they create a searchable archive of discussions. The PC-BSD Project offers the following mailing lists to cover a wide variety of discussion topics:

  • Announcements: a read-only, low frequency list used by the PC-BSD team to make announcements to the community.
  • Commits: lists SVN commits as PC-BSD code is added or modified by developers.
  • Dev: for discussion related to PC-BSD technical development.
  • Docs: for communications between those involved, or interested in contributing to, the PC-BSD documentation effort.
  • Install-frontend: for discussion related to the frontend to the pc-sysinstall utility.
  • Installer: for discussions about the backend to the pc-sysinstall utility.
  • PBI-bugs: for users to report and discuss bugs found in PBI applications.
  • PBI-dev: for discussions between PBI developers and users concerning PBI construction and maintenance.
  • PBIbuild: lists SVN commits as PBIs are added or modified by PBI developers.
  • PCBSD-Malaysia: general discussion list for Malaysian users in their native language.
  • PCBSD-warden: the place to discuss The Warden software for PC-BSD.
  • Public: general public list for discussion not related to the other mailing lists.
  • Support: if you have a problem, you should report your issue or error messages on this list.
  • Testing: for those wishing to participate in PC-BSD beta testing and feedback.
  • Trac-bugs: lists notifications about changes to PC-BSD bug reports in Trac database.
  • Translations: for those involved in translating for PC-BSD.

Each mailing list includes a description of topics suitable for discussion on that list and indicates if it is read only or available for user discussion. Anyone can read the archives for a list. If you wish to send an email to a list, subscribe to it and confirm your subscription first.

Apart from these official mailing lists, there's also a number of non-official mailing lists set up by PC-BSD users. Many of these lists are designed for discussion in other languages. A list of alternative PC-BSD mailing lists can be found here.
