ASF Infrastructure mailing lists

Participation in these lists is only available to ASF committers.

Subscribe in the normal way. The moderators will need to ensure that you are an ASF committer, so please either use your @apache.org address or the forwarding address of your @apache.org address. There are public archives for issues@ and site-dev@; all other infra@ lists are private. (We often call it "infra@" because that is less typing, but there is no such list.)

Respect these private mailing lists

The infra@ mailing lists are (mostly) private mailing lists. You must not forward messages from there to public lists. Forwarding to more private mailing lists (like a pmc mailing list, the board, or the members mailing list) might be appropriate on some occasions. Ask if in doubt.

The lists

users@infra ... the general discussion list is used by the Infrastructure team to discuss issues concerning the operation of the overall Apache Software Foundation systems, and for committers to report problems or issues. This is not the address for questions about the ASF or any of its projects. It is for communication between ASF committers only to support the infrastructure. Anyone may send mail to report problems with ASF systems (however see notes about service status ). Previously known as infrastructure@ Private archive.

infrastructure-dev@, was dedicated to developing and documenting software tools for potential future infrastructure of the Apache Software Foundation, developing current infrastructure before it is placed into operation, and discussing software improvements that aren't specific to the ASF's running configuration. In other words, stuff that volunteers can work on without knowing the internals of what we are using right now and without having access to the private archives or internals of the ASF. Reply-To was set to go back to the list. See pre-2016 public archives. Note: this list was closed in Oct 2016 and not replaced. Instead please use the privately archived users@infra archives from 2017 on.

private@infra ... The core infra@ team only. Much lower traffic and focused on the infrastructure team working directly on the issues that are most pressing at any particular point in time. Think of this as "infrastructure-operations" where critical problems are addressed and internal team discussion takes place. Critical or sensitive issues from other lists are escalated to this operations list. Subscriptions are moderated by the infra team, and restricted to ASF members and current infrastructure volunteers (though everyone is welcome to volunteer!). Only subscribers can post. Everyone else cannot. Other messages are not moderated through. Reply-To is set to go back to the list. Previously known as infrastructure-private@ Private archive.

commits@infra ... the SVN commit messages for the ASF Infrastructure trunk. Also Git commit messages for ASF Infra. Previously known as infrastructure-cvs@ Private archive.

issues@infra ... messages from the INFRA Issue Tracker. Only ASF committers and people invited by the infra@ team can join. Only Jira can post. To "post" to this list you file a Jira comment which Jira sends to the list. Reply-To is set to the Jira mail-to-comment bridge. Previously known as infrastructure-issues@ Public archive

site-cvs@ ... the SVN commit messages for the ASF Infrastructure website (at /dev/ and /foundation/ etc). Private archive

site-dev@ The site-dev list was formed to allow for discussion of every aspect of the small number of websites that are centrally managed by the ASF (e.g. /dev/) and for co-ordination of infrastructure needs and publishing methods for all ASF project websites. Participation in these lists is NOT limited to committers, but rather to any committer or interested party invited by a committer (please would the committer send email to site-dev-owner). The list is normally low volume and aims to discsuss all aspects of the websites, from creation tools through to look and feel. Public archive

Which list should I use?
