Important

petsc-maint@mcs.anl.gov - a private maintenance e-mail without public archives is also available. It might be preferable to send issues requiring large attachments here (for example uncompressed configure.log, make.log` when encountering installation issues).

Additional notes on sending bug-reports is available at documentation

Note

• petsc-announce is an announcement only list (i.e users cannot post on this list).

• petsc-users and petsc-dev are open; we recommend subscribing and participating in the list discussions. However, it is possible to post to the lists without subscribing (the first post to the list will be held until list owner can enable access)

• Avoid cross posting to multiple lists. You can reach PETSc developers equally on any suitable list.

This is mostly for PETSc developers, but is by no means a requirement. This mailing list is also relevant for those who are interested in the development process of PETSc.
