+% New development mailing list for Libreboot
+% Leah Rowe
+% 10 Jun 2017
+Our sysadmin, Alyssa Rosenzweig, has set up a mailing list on libreboot.org
+infrastructure, for development discussions.
+The mailing list address is
+Information about the mailing list and how to subscribe are
+[here](../lists/). Archives of discussion threads
+This replaces the mailing lists that we had before. The mailing list software
+in use is [GNU Mailman](https://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/), which is also
+used by many other free software projects and is very popular. If you already
+use mailing lists in other projects, then the way to use Libreboot's new
+mailing list is exactly the same.
+This mailing list is for development discussion *only*. User support is still
+handled via #libreboot on Freenode IRC, as always.
+This new mailing list will also be used for beta testing of upcoming stable
+releases, from now on. Work is currently underway on a new Libreboot release.
