There are a number of public mailing lists for people interested in Evergreen open source library software - general, governance, documentation,taskforces, development & commits. There is also one private security list used to report and discuss security vulnerabilities without disclosing those problems until a fix is available.
Mailing Lists Policy
In the interests of transparency everything on the mailing lists is public and logged.
Technically, administrators can delete things, but the content may be mirrored, has feeds and is in the Google cache & other search engines indexes, so deleting something doesn’t make it go away. Our policy is to leave the archives alone except in exceptional cases. Please send a request promptly to email@example.com if you believe you are the exception.
Security Mailing List
To report a vulnerability to the Evergreen security vulnerability mailing list, please email your report to firstname.lastname@example.org.
General Mailing List
Evergreen General Discussion List
This is the general-topic, (usually) non-technical list for the Evergreen community — Evergreen users, librarians, library workers, library users, developers, fellow travelers, or people just plain curious about Evergreen. As of October, 2008, this list had over 500 members. Its traffic is moderate.
General means general. Posts range from discussions about possible new features to quick questions about implementation. There is no such thing as a “dumb” question or comment for the Evergreen general list. If you’re thinking the question, chances are, you’re in good company. Ask, and you give other members of the Evergreen community an opportunity to share their growing knowledge.
