Contact Information

We have several mailing lists, a Bugzilla bug tracking system, and an IRC channel associated with the project.

Mailing Lists

Due to the prevelence of SPAM in the internet, ALL our mailing lists require subscribing before you can post to them. So be sure and subscribe, or don't try and post to them.

Announcement Mailing List (announce-only)

The announcement mailing list is a low-traffic announce-only mailing list where notifications for new releases, major bugs, etc. are sent. We strongly recommend that everyone using or redistributing the Linux-HA software subscribe to this list.

Main Mailing List

The main mailing list is a discussion list where general configuration questions, etc. can get answered for stable releases.

Japanese Main Mailing List

The main Japanese mailing list is a Japanese-langauge discussion list where general configuration questions, etc. can get answered for stable releases.

Development mailing list

This is where discussions on the Mercurial and beta versions of the Linux-HA software get answered. At the present time, most of the discussion of Linux-HA on non-Linux platforms takes place here.

CVS commits mailing list

This list is no longer relevant. Subscribe to one or more of the RSS feeds from our Mercurial repository instead. The set of Mercurial repositories has links to the RSS feeds for each.

Security Mailing List (post-only)

This is where you should post security concerns. For example if you believe you found a security vulnerability in the code you should post your concerns here. If you think someone has compromised your machine using the Linux-HA software, you should post here. This list is open for all to post to. Because of the sensitive nature of this mailing list, subscriptions to read postings to this list are by invitation only.

  • To report security related issues in Linux-HA software, please send email to This is the focal point for all Linux-HA security issues.
