The xpert mailing list is the general, public mailing list on X maintained by
the X Consortium. The mailings are gatewayed, so xpert is almost identical to
the comp.windows.x Usenet newsgroup.

	***     If you get comp.windows.x, you don't need to    *** 
	*** 	be added to the xpert mailing list.             ***

Otherwise, you can join the list to receive X information electronically. It
is best to find a local distribution; perhaps someone within your company is
already receiving the mailing. As a last resort, send mail to
xpert-request@x.org with a valid return electronic address.

The xannounce mailing list carries major X announcements, such as new
releases (including public patches from the Consortium), public reviews,
adoption of standards by the X Consortium, and conference announcements.  It
does NOT carry advertisements, source code, patches, or questions.  If you
already receive the Usenet news group comp.windows.x.announce or the xpert
mailing list, you don't need to be added to the xannounce mailing list.
Otherwise, to subscribe, send a request to xannounce-request@x.org. Note:
only redistribution addresses will be accepted for this list -- i.e. no
personal addresses. If you wish to receive xannounce yourself, please contact
your mail administrator to set up a local redistribution list and to put you
on it.

comp.windows.x.apps is not gatewayed to a mailing list.

In addition, the X Consortium sponsors these public lists:
		bug-clx         CLX bug reports and discussions
		x-ada           X and ada 
		x11-3d          X and 3d graphics 
		ximage          image processing and X 
		xvideo          discussion of video extensions for X 
		x-agent		protocols for external agents (e.g. editres) 

To subscribe to any of the above mailing lists, send mail to the list with
"-request" appended; this example adds pat@mumble.widget.com to the xpert
mailing list:

	% mail xpert-request@x.org
	Subject: (none needed)
	subscribe xpert pat@mumble.widget.com
	^D

To unsubscribe:

	% mail xpert-request@x.org
	Subject: (none needed)
	unsubscribe
	^D
