sorry you confused me

I just looked at the site, and I can see how someone could be confused. The
problem is the line under sidlc that goes:

"Please use the above URLs for subscribing and unsubscribing from these
lists rather than the instructions below."

If they obey that, they will never get to the next page that has the link to
the weblist. Given that, samba-technical looks like the list to use.

I just checked again, and see a new direct link to the SAMBA list has been
added which will hopefully do the trick.

The suggestions on where to go are correct. But do due to maintenance work
it seems like people find the wrong things first. Everything is there, but
it is not obvious.

IMHO, the first thing one should read on is how to
subscribe to samba at and what that list is about.

Maybe a link pointing to:;newuser=1

For general questions on how to use samba, reporting bugs, suggestions,
submitting patches please use the samba mailinglist, samba at To
subscribe to the samba list send an email like this:

       To: listproc at
       Subject: subscribe

       subscribe SAMBA YOUR NAME

You should receive a email reply giving you your password a few minutes

Those are lists no longer hosted on that machine. If you go down to the
subscribing section it gives you a short note on how to subscribe to the
lists that haven't moved, including the samba list. Unfortunately it
doesn't list what choices you have, which may be confusing.
