Question Mailing Lists

Hello All!

I was just wondering what (if any) mailing lists you all subscribe to?

I find, for the most part, that the mailing lists are an easy way to keep up with things and it seems that EVERY linux project has a mailing list.

Thanks for the quick reply, leonscape.

I get what you are saying. It's bad enough that we get all the crap that we already do.

I was thinking in more general terms though. For instance, I subscribe to Symantec's Mailing List for quick and legit virus/worm alerts for Windows. And I subscribe to Red Hat's mailing list to keep tabs on things over there.

I also maintain several different e-mail accounts for just this type of circumstance. One for spam, one for mailing lists/message boards, one for work, one for bills, and one for school and just have everything but the spam forwarded to my main account. I usually have about 25 legit e-mails when I get home, but that's 10 times better than the 100+ I'll have in my inbox when I get to work in the morning!

Anyways, enough rambling. Any other suggestions?
