Mailing Lists

Developer’s List (flang-dev)

This list is for people who want to be included in technical discussions related to Flang. People post to this list when they have questions about writing code for or using the Flang tools. It is relatively low volume.

Commits Archive (flang-commits)

This list contains all commit messages that are made when Flang developers commit code changes to the repository. It also serves as a forum for patch review (i.e. send patches here). It is useful for those who want to stay on the bleeding edge of Flang development. This list is high volume.
