MailingLists

< Contributors | Documentation index | PmWiki philosophy >

There are several mailing lists available for PmWiki.

[ pmwiki-users(approve sites) ]
This is a great resource where a very helpful group of people will answer questions and discuss PmWiki development. Traffic is around 20-40 messages a day (on slow days).
If you ask a question on the list and it doesn't get answered, don't feel let down. Just ask it again. It probably slipped by unnoticed.

[ pmwiki-users-fr(approve sites) ]

[ pmwiki-devel(approve sites) ]

[ pmwiki-announce(approve sites) ]
Announcements of new version releases and urgent information. If you use PmWiki in a production environment, this low-volume list is highly recommended. The archive is at:

Suggestions:

  • If you reply to a digest message, please remove the messages irrelevant to your reply before sending it back to the list.
    • It's also helpful (but less important) to change "Re: pmwiki-users Digest, Vol [...]" to "Re: [the original subject]" because some mail programs determine threads based on the subject.
  • If you address a reply to a single list member, please take the [pmwiki-users] off the subject line, or it's possible for your message to get lost in the mailing list traffic. Many people filter list traffic to a separate mailbox.

Changing mail list settings

Here are some tips regarding changing the mailing list settings:

  • Logging in...
    • First go to http://pmichaud.com/mailman/listinfo/pmwiki-users(approve sites) and enter your e-mail address in the field at the bottom of the page, to the left of the button Unsubscribe or edit options.
    • Next you need to enter your password. As you've probably forgotten this, use the button Remind at the bottom of the page to get a new password.
    • Finally enter the password you should get momentarily via e-mail.
  • You can directly go to the options web page through a URI such as the following:
http://host.pmichaud.com/mailman/options/pmwiki-users/<user>%40<domain>
where <user> is everything before the @ in an e-mail address, and <domain> is everything after ( For those who wonder, the %40 in the URI just stands for '@'.

Newsgroups (NNTP)

You may be interested, that the lists are also accessible as newsgroups.

The NNTP server is:

The groups are:

  • gmane.comp.web.wiki.pmwiki.user
