# Mailing Lists¶

Important

Do not send configure and installation questions to the petsc-users mailing list. Always send them (and include configure.log and make.log) to petsc-maint@mcs.anl.gov. See bug-report documentation for more information.

For all other contact, we have the following mailing lists with public archives for general use.

Note

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

• petsc-users and petsc-dev are subscriber-only lists (i.e to post to this list - you have to subscribe first).

• All lists have limits on message sizes - so if you have to send in attachments - most likely the appropriate place is petsc-maint@mcs.anl.gov - not the mailing list.

• The mailing lists are migrated from majordomo to mailman in Jan-09. So links to archives, and subscription procedures have changed since then - as indicated above.

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.
