Get that Linux feeling - on Windows

Is there a mailing list for the project?

Yes. There are several. They are listed below.

However, please check out the FAQ, the documentation, and the problem reporting guidelines before sending email to a mailing list.

I have a question! Should I just send it to one of the mailing lists below?

That depends. Have you researched your question already? Cygwin is not a new project. It has been around for many years. That means that almost any question has probably already been asked. Places to check for information would be the Cygwin FAQ, the Cygwin documentation, the web, and the mailing list archives (click on a mailing list name below to search the archive).

Now that you searched the information sources and came up blank, let us say that there are a lot of friendly folk who will probably try to answer your questions. However, if you are going to ask a question, you should make sure that you ask in a way which allows the folks on the list to answer your question most easily. Vague, content-free, or repetitive queries or observations are not overly likely to get an answer.


Cygwin Mailing Lists

Clicking on any of the above mailing list links will take you to the form for subscribing to or unsubscribing from the respective mailing list.

If you have any questions or problems with the mailing lists, see the Sourceware mailing list FAQs.

Before you send any mail to one of these lists, you need to read the relevant Cygwin documentation, especially the Cygwin FAQ, and the mailing list archives so that you don't ask a question that someone has already asked or report a bug that has already been reported.
