The Haskell Mailing Lists

There are two electronic mailing lists to discuss issues related to Haskell in general, and several additional mailing lists for more detailed discussion topics, including one for each particular implementation of Haskell.

General mailing lists

haskell@haskell.org
Announcements, discussion openers, technical questions
haskell-cafe@haskell.org
New-to-Haskell, i.e. elementary, Haskell questions; extended discussions

The division of the general list was introduced for people who want to stay in touch with what's happening in the Haskell world, but who don't want to be swamped with mail. Discussions of any kind can start on 'haskell', but should transfer to 'haskell-cafe' if they go beyond a few 'rounds'.

Haskell mailing lists are managed by mailman - each list has a web interface. To subscribe, unsubscribe, or view the archives of a list visit the home page of the list, such as the Haskell mailing list home page or the Haskell Cafe mailing list home page.

There exists an archive of all messages sent to the haskell list since March 1997. This includes messages from before the list was converted to mailman.

Any problems with the two mailing lists should be reported to haskell-admin@haskell.org.

More specific lists

There are mailing lists for each implementation of Haskell, and for more detailed discussion topics. Questions, comments, and bug reports regarding a specific implementation should be sent directly to the appropriate list instead of the entire Haskell community. Separate topics such as documentation tools, the common FFI, and libraries, also have a list of their own.
