There are several mailing lists available for PmWiki.
- [ pmwiki-users ]
- This is a great resource where a very helpful group of people will answer questions and discuss PmWiki development. Traffic is around 20-40 messages a day (on slow days :).If you ask a question on the list and it doesn't get answered, don't feel let down. Just ask it again. It probably slipped by unnoticed.
- [ pmwiki-announce ]
- Announcements of new version releases. The archive is at:
- [ pmwiki-users-de ]
- A mailing list for german-speaking users of PmWiki. Archived at
