-Newsgroup and mailing list
---------------------------
+Newsgroups
+----------
 
-There are a newsgroup and a mailing list devoted to Python.  The
-newsgroup, comp.lang.python, contains exactly the same messages as the
-mailing list (though not always in the same order, due to the
-mysterious nature of the Usenet news distribution algorithm).  To
-subscribe to the mailing list, send mail containing your real name and
-e-mail address to "python-list-request@cwi.nl".  Use the same address
-if you want to unsibscribed.  (A real person reads these messages, so
-no LISTPROC or Majordomo commands, please, and please be patient --
-normal turn-around time is about one working day.)
+Read comp.lang.python, a high-volume discussion newsgroup about
+Python, or comp.lang.python.announce, a low-volume moderated newsgroup
+for Python-related announcements.  These are also accessible as
+mailing lists, see the next item.
 
-The Python web site contains a search form that lets you search the
-newsgroup archives (and the web site itself).  Click on the "search"
-link in the banner menu on any page of http://www.python.org/.
+Archives are accessible via Deja News; the Python website has a
+query form for the archives at http://www.python.org/search/.

+many Python related mailing lists.
 
 
 Bug reports
 -----------
 
-Bugs are best reported to the comp.lang.python newsgroup or the Python
-mailing list -- see the section "Newsgroup and mailing list" above.
-Before posting, check the newsgroup archives (see above) to see if
-your bug has already been reported!  If you don't want to go public,
-send them to me: <guido@python.org>.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
