    Sorry for all the spam.  We think we have the mailing list tied into
    the new bug tracker properly now.

    If you want to receive mail for all new bug reports and bug updates
    then your mailing list subscription gets you that.  However, you do NOT
    need a mailing list subscription in order to file a bug report or track
    a bug report that you've filed.

    In order to file a bug report or post to the list (which automatically
    opens a new bug in the tracker and/or tracks an existing bug), you have
    to be registered with our bugs database at:


    The list subscription and the bugs database registration are two different
    things.  You need the list subscription if you want to be CCd on all
    bug filings and updates.  You need the database registration in order
    to be able to post new bugs or followup on bugs via email.

    People can also followup on bugs via the bugs.dragonflybsd.org web site
    and not bother with email at all.  In fact, it might be preferable for
    many people (mostly non-developers) to unsubscribe from the mailing list
    and simply follow bugs via the web site.
