debian-user lsit information and guidelines (posted monthly)
debian-user is a mailing list provided for support for Debian users,and to facilitate discussion on relevant topics.
Some guidelines which may help explain how the list works:
The language on this mailing list is English. There may be other mailing lists that are language-specific:for example, debian-user-french
It is common for users to be redirected here from other lists - for example, from debian-project, if their query is not appropriate there.
It is also common for people to be posting here when English is not their primary language. Please be considerate.
The mailing list is a Debian communication forum. As such, it is subject to both the Debian mailing list Code of Conduct and the main Debian Code of Conduct
This is a fairly busy mailing list and you may have to wait for an answer - please be patient. Please post answers back to the list so others can benefit; private
conversations don't benefit people who may be following along on the list or reading the archives later.
Help and advice on this list is provided by volunteers in their own time. It is common for there to be different opinions or answers provided. If responding to
someone, be considerate of their time and effort.
Please try to stay on topic. Arguments for the sake of it are not welcome here. Partisan political / religious / cultural arguments do not belong here either. Debian's community is world wide; don't assume others will agree with your views or need to read them on a Debian list.
There is a comprehensive FAQ on the Debian Wiki which is in need of updating.
