Mailing lists are the main discussion mechanism for the PEGs. Historically, mailing lists are the main discussion mechanism for open source projects. While limited in many ways, no tool has replaced them for general discussion. In prpl PEGs, mailing lists are used in the following ways:
- deciding the general direction of the project
- discussion of events
- voting on the community representative
- discussion of new features and bugs
Mailing lists, except for the private mailing lists used for adding or removing PEG committers, are open to anyone and publicly archived. NOTE: Pseudonyms are okay.
When should you use them?
- you want to discuss the features
When shouldn't you use them?
- you're unsure or have a question about how to use prpl software - Use the forums
- you want to report a bug - Use the issue tracker
