Mailing List Information

Ansible Project List is for sharing Ansible tips, answering questions, and general user discussion.

Ansible Development List is for learning how to develop on Ansible, asking about prospective feature design, or discussions about extending ansible or features in progress.

Ansible Announce list is a read-only list that shares information about new releases of Ansible, and also rare infrequent event information, such as announcements about an upcoming AnsibleFest, which is our official conference series.

Ansible Container List is for users and developers of the Ansible Container project.

Ansible Lockdown List is for all things related to Ansible Lockdown projects, including DISA STIG automation and CIS Benchmarks.
