The ONAP project uses standard GNU Mailman list management tools to configure and maintain the mailing lists associated with the project. Mailman is free software for managing electronic mail discussion and e-newsletter lists. Mailman is integrated with the web, making it easy for users to manage their accounts and for list owners to administer their lists. Mailman supports built-in archiving, automatic bounce processing, content filtering, digest delivery, spam filters, and more.  See the Mailman FAQ for additional information.

  1. I used the web interface link given above to subscribe to the mailing lists but I haven't got any approval emails yet. Should I be sending request to listname-join instead?

  2. We have seen on some occasions that subscribe verification notices end up either getting blocked by company level spam filters or end up in someone's junk folder,

    If you try using the LIST-NAME-join email and still do not get a reply, please send an email to  indicating the list you would like to join and noting that repeted attempts have failed and someone will add you by hand.
