Mailing lists

Mailing lists are the primary support channel for FreeBSD users, with numerous mailing lists covering different topic areas. When in doubt about what list to post a question to, post to freebsd-questions@FreeBSD.ORG. You can search the mailing list archives at www.freebsd.org.

Several non-English mailing lists are also available:

If you create other freebsd mailing lists, let us know about them.

Newsgroups

There are a few FreeBSD specific newsgroups, along with numerous other newsgroups on topics of interest to FreeBSD users, though the mailing lists remain the most reliable way to get in touch with the FreeBSD developers. For miscellaneous FreeBSD discussion, see comp.unix.bsd.freebsd.misc. For important announcements, see comp.unix.bsd.freebsd.announce.

WEB Resources

Our WEB pages remain one of the best sources of information, and are also mirrored at many sites around the world. Most countries also now have subdomains set up under freebsd.org to make such local resources easier to find - when in doubt, try connecting to www.yourcountry.freebsd.org (e.g. www.de.freebsd.org for Germany or www.au.freebsd.org for Australia). The same naming convention is also used for FTP servers.

For information on recent FreeBSD progress and releases, see the Newsflash page.

GNATS Problem Report Database

Current FreeBSD problem reports are tracked using the GNATS database.

Problem reports may also be submitted to the development team using the send-pr(1) command on a FreeBSD system or by sending an email message to freebsd-bugs@FreeBSD.ORG. Please note that send-pr is preferred since messages sent to the mailing list are not tracked as official problem reports!

CVS Repository

CVS (the Concurrent Version System) is the tool we use for keeping our sources under control. Every change (with accompanying log message explaining its purpose) from FreeBSD 2.0 to the present is stored here, and can be easily viewed from here (click on the link). To obtain a complete copy of the FreeBSD CVS repository, please use either the cvsup or CTM tools or simply FTP it.

User Groups

FreeBSD's widespread popularity has spawned a number of user groups around the world. If you know of a FreeBSD user group not listed here, let us know about it.

  • BAFUG (Bay Area FreeBSD User Group) (contact info?)

  • BSDHH (BSD user group Hamburg) meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 7.00pm in the Chinese restaurant Lotosbluete, Loewenstrasse 22 in Hamburg Eppendorf. Most members are FreeBSD users, although users of all BSD flavors are welcome. Interested people should send mail to bsdhh@bsdhh.org.

  • The Brainstorm users group meets in Wuerzburg, Germany and welcomes all users of Unix, with some emphasis on helping new users of FreeBSD. They meet every Monday at 8.00pm in the "Cafe Klug", Muenzstrasse, Wuerzburg. Mail bs@rak.franken.de for more information or follow the Brainstorm link.

  • FUUNM (Free Unix Users of New Mexico) meets on the 2nd Saturday of the month from 4:30-6:00pm at the Farris Engineering Center, room 141, University of new Mexico. This is not specifically a FreeBSD user group, but if you are in the area, your presence is welcome. The group operates a mailing list (fuunm@astro.phys.unm.edu). Contact Alan Lundin for more information.

  • FreeBSD-Milwaukee Wisconsin meets occasionally and has a mailing list: freebsd-mke-l@ns.sol.net. send mail to freebsd-mke-l-request@ns.sol.net to subscribe.

  • RUUG (Reno Unix Users Group) meets monthly in Reno Nevada and discusses the use of FreeBSD and Linux. Contact Eric Blood or Todd Crenshaw for more information.

  • Washington DC (DC Metropolitan Area) FreeBSD User Group is now forming. Please contact Richard Cramer, Sytex Access Ltd. at 703-425-2515, or preferred, email at rcramer@sytex.net to be put on a member distribution list. Initial meeting to be held in May.
