This email is a follow-up to my post to this forum of 2 days ago of
subject "RFC: host for new m-l for a DBMS module".
See http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.dbi.users/30734 for a
web-archived copy of that message, for context.
Despite what I said in that email, I was able to self-host my mailing
lists after all, so a semblence of the long term plan became the
If you go to http://mm.darrenduncan.net/mailman/listinfo , you can
see the 3 mailing lists that I created for QDRDBMS. You can view the
web archive of existing messages, and subscribe to the list if you
want to post your own, or get them in your inbox. These are the
This low-volume list is mainly for official announcements from the
QDRDBMS developers, though developers of QDRDBMS extensions can also
post their announcements here. This is not a discussion list.
This list is for general discussion among people who are using QDRDBMS,
which is not concerned with the implementation of QDRDBMS itself. This
is the best place to ask for basic help in getting QDRDBMS installed on
your machine or to make it do what you want. You could also submit
feature requests or report perceived bugs here, if you don't want to
use CPAN's RT system.
This list is for discussion among people who are designing or
implementing the QDRDBMS core API (including QDRDBMS D language
design), or who are implementing QDRDBMS Engines, or who are writing
core documentation, tests, or examples. It is not the place for
non-implementers to get help in using said.
(Note: While these lists are run using "mailman", I did turn off the
feature to send subscribers their password every month, in case that
was the bane of many.)
If you are interested in QDRDBMS but don't know which list or lists
are most applicable to you, then perhaps look at the similarly-named
3 mailing lists for DBI or Bricolage or other projects, especially
DBI; the above 3 are intended for analagous purposes. Also like the
DBI lists, any list member can post to any list, though non-members
can not post to them.
Note that I anticipate the lists will have no messaging activity for
the first few weeks, but that should start about when I make my first
CPAN release of QDRDBMS, expected in about a month or so.
But I am telling you about the lists now, so that when someone wants
to make a post, there would be a fair number of people in position to
Thank you in advance for any interest you may have in QDRDBMS.
