This move has now happened.

The new list is at

nbd@other.debian.org (Cc added)

for subscribing, or viewing the archive (which has been imported in its
entirety from the sourceforge mbox export, *after* I manually pruned it
of all the spam -- sigh), please go to


PLEASE NOTE: for vague legal reasons that they don't go into,
Sourceforge does not allow administrators to see the list of
subscribers. As such, if you want to be on the new list, you must go to
the above URL and subscribe. Otherwise, you won't see mails that go to
the new address.

I'll leave the old list functional for a few weeks more in case people

All that means that 3.16.2 is out -- with more than just the mailinglist
address update:

- Make the test suite less chatty
- Various build system improvements
- Fixes to the systemd unit to make it work again with recent systemd
- Point to the nbd mailinglist, rather than to the maintainer's personal
  email address, for bug reports.

Get it at the usual place (no, I have no plans of immediately changing


Could you people please use IRC like normal people?!?
