Public Mailing Lists

The mailing lists are the main communication channels for the XWiki community. There are 3 of them that you can post to (click on the links to subscribe and manage your account):

  • users AT For questions about using XWiki, suggestions for improvements, ideas, etc.
  • devs AT For XWiki development itself.
  • notifications AT All code commits, JIRA issues and Continuous Build failures are sent to this list. XWiki developers must be subscribed to this list to follow what's going on.

Before posting on the lists, please make sure to follow these posting tips.

Before sending mails to any of the lists mentioned above you'll need to be subscribed to the list. Be very careful to send the mail with the email address you've used to subscribe or your mail won't make it to the list and will be rejected. You can register by clicking on the links above (you can also use these links for unsubscribing). Please also note that large emails - over 100K - will be rejected when sent to these lists.

Private Mailing Lists

Unlike public mailing list above, these mailing lists are only accessible for core committers and some other trusted persons. Unregistered users can not read archives of this mailing list, because it might contain sensitive security details.

However, anyone can write to these lists to report issues (no subscription needed).  If you want to contribute to discussions on these lists, start contributing and ask for access to the lists on the development mailing list.  Committers will decide whether you will get access or not.


The XWiki mailing lists can be accessed as a Forum using Nabble in Embedded mode or Gmane.

Note that using Nabble allows you to post to the forum without registering (the post will not be sent to the XWiki mailing list though and thus only users checking the forum will see your post). Even though we don't like users to do this (since users will not automatically receive answers to their questions for example and it doesn't create a relationship) it might come handy under some circumstances.
