Mailing Lists

Spirit Mailing Lists

Spirit has two mailing lists. Spirit-general for Spirit users and Spirit-devel for Spirit developers (open to anyone who wishes to hang out with Spirit coders). Both have GMane NNTP access (Spirit-general and Spirit-devel) with searchable archives ( Spirit-general and Spirit-devel).

Before Posting

Read the Discussion Policy and Guide to Effective Posting. Doing so will help you to ensure that your post is read by the people who can help you and received in the spirit in which it was intended.

Subscribe your posting address. As an anti-spam measure, postings to most Boost mailing lists will only be accepted if the posting’s “From:” header contains an email address that is subscribed to the list. If you try to post from an address that isn’t subscribed, you will probably get a message that says:

You are not allowed to post to this mailing list, and your message has been automatically rejected. If you think that your messages are being rejected in error, contact the mailing list owner at list administrator’s email address.

If you need to post from multiple email addresses, you should subscribe each one separately. You can configure your subscription settings for any address to disable mail delivery via each mailing list’s web interface.

Even postings made through the GMane news server need to be made from subscribed addresses because GMane simply forwards your postings on to the appropriate email list. Don’t be fooled by GMane’s authentication message that says “you are now authorized to post to this list” after you answer its autogenerated mail; only subscribed addresses may post.
