E-mail Discussion List
The Swish-e e-mail list is for the discussion of the Swish-e software and its implementation and use. Bug fixes, problem reports, desired features, and more are all appropriate topics.
Read these important tips if you want effective and speedy help.
The list is low traffic. A few messages a week, and sometimes a few a day. If you plan on using Swish-e you really should join the list. Email sent directly to developers will likely be ignored.
Subscribing to the Swish-e Users's List
Follow the instructions listed at this page to subscribe to the Swish-e User's List:
Note: You are responsible for subscribing and un-subscribing yourself. Sending "unsubscribe me" messages to the list is just lame.
You may search the list archive:
A Boolean "and" between words is assumed; that is, documents will be retrieved that have all the specified words. If you wish to find all the documents that have any word, then use "or" between your search words. To truncate a word, use an asterisk (*) at the end. For example, the search "comput*" would retrieve documents that have the words "computer", "computing", "computation", etc. Search capability is being provided by Swish-e, what else?
The Swish-e discussion began on July 9, 1997.
The following policy governs all postings to the Swish-e list. Offenders will be warned once and removed from the list after a second violation of the same policy:
- All messages must relate to Swish-enhanced or issues related to the development or implementation of it.
- Advertisements are not appropriate. However, a simple statement that offers a way to follow-up for more information on a service or product is tolerated if it accompanies a substantive message discussing a subject appropriate to the list.
- Personal attacks such as name calling and personal insults will not be tolerated. Comments that are intended only to enrage the recipient rather than contribute to thoughtful discussion are prohibited.
- All postings must be free of copyright restrictions that limit distribution. For example, posting a significant amount of a copyrighted work verbatim requires the permission of the copyright holder. To verify that such permission was obtained, all postings of this nature must include a statement that this is the case.
