The mailing lists are archived on various websites that are available
to search engines. In my experience hits on these are more reliable
than information on websites. Howtos quite often contain bad advice
that goes uncorrected. 

Forums are similar, but they are fragmented across different websites,
and in my experience they are of lower quality.
