For Users and Developers

This is the most active list for all general discussions and questions. We also would like to hear about ideas for applications for the GNUstep environment and related issues.
For infos and announcements related to GNUstep libraries and applications.
For discussions related to GNUstep applications.
For help with GNUstep libraries and applications. This list is rarely read, so it is better to use discuss-gnustep.

For Developers

This mailing list has been established to keep the noise low when it comes to core topics and generally boring discussions about technical aspects of GNUstep.
A mailing list for submitting bug reports and patches. Reports filed in the bug tracker are also sent here.
Mailing list for people who package GNUstep itself and related GNUstep apps.
Discussion about the GNUstep User Interface, its look and behaviour.
Marketing and promotion of the GNUstep project and its applications.
For comments and discussions about GNUstep web pages.

IRC

Some, but not all, GNUstep developers can also be reached through IRC at irc://irc.freenode.net/gnustep. If that link doesn't work for you, connect manually to irc.freenode.net (or irc.gnu.org or irc.debian.org, same network) and /join #GNUstep.

Examples of IRC clients you can use: xchat (UNICES and Windows), Pidgin (UNICES and Windows), mirc (Windows) or TalkSoup on GNUstep's LiveCD for Intel or irssi from a bash shell.
