We have a number of mailing lists. People should be subscribed to the most specific list that they belong to - e.g., a grad student should be subscribed to db-grads only, and this will automatically register the grad student in the "ancestor" groups: db-grads, db-students, and db-lab. The grad student will also automatically be added to the db-talks mailing lists. Here is part of the list:
A few other lists also exist:
To subscribe to a mailing list, send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org to join a specific list. This sends a note to the owner of the list.
