BSD API Mailing Lists

At the last Usenix BSD MegaBOF, I proposed a mailing lists be created
to announce changes to the BSD APIs. The notion was to have a list
where people would post messages about new APIs they were adding to
their flavor of BSD so that people from other BSDs would be aware of
the activity.

I've since created this mailing list, and a second list (probably a
lot more controversial) for (I hope calmly) discussing such APIs and
their design. 

These lists are:

  bsd-api-announce at
  bsd-api-discuss at

Both lists are subscribable via majordomo. Both lists are
moderated. Attempts to use either list to flame will be ruthlessly
crushed by my delete key.

If you'd like to learn more about the charter of these lists, try:

echo "info bsd-api-announce" | mail -s "" majordomo at
echo "info bsd-api-discuss" | mail -s "" majordomo at

This is the moderated mailing list freebsd-announce.
The list contains announcements of new FreeBSD capabilities,
important events and project milestones.

To Unsubscribe: send mail to majordomo at
with "unsubscribe freebsd-announce" in the body of the message
