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
- Announcements, discussion openers, technical questions
- 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 href="http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/mailman.html 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 [http://haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/haskell Haskell mailing list home page] or the [http://haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/haskell-cafe Haskell Cafe mailing list home page].
There exists an [http://firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com.
More specific lists
- [http://haskell.org/mailman/listinfo A comprehensive list
of all Haskell related mailing 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.
