Hi folks,

a short draft that may be published once a week? Give me input, correct
typos and grammatical errors.



1. Subscription

You may always change your subscribtion options at
http://mail.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/bug-gnubg. This is also the place
for unsubscribing.

2. Subject

Please use a meaningfull subject. There is no use in " bug found" or
"gnubg" as subject. If you really want to be smart put a 

feature request:
compiling error:

or any other meaningfull category in front of your own subject.

3. Formatting

Please don't use html e-mails. A few e-mail programs like Outlook
Express send html per default. It' easy to change this in the option
menue. Further information can be found at


4. Signature

Your signature should be not bigger than four (4) lines and start with a
"-- "

If you qoute text of another posting, it's _not_ necessary to quote his
signature also.

5. Quoting

Please avoid top quouting and full qouting. What do we mean? A few ms
windows e-mail programs (like Outlook Express) always quote full the
original e-mail at the bottom of the reply. You should also only quote
the relevant parts of the original e-mail. "Jeopardy" quoting and full
quoting is one of the most annoying behaviours in mailing lists. It
forces the reader to scroll forth and back to follow the contents of the
mailing thread.

With "good" quoting you will greatly enhance the Here is an example of
qouting how it should be:

| Adam  wrote:
| > Here is a bunch of text by someone. This was originally a 25 line
| > paragraph, but [snip irrelevant portion]
| Now you, as the author, respond to those points, right here.
| If you have more to quote, do so:
| > Someone still had a couple more points to which you wanted to
| > reply, so you quote them [but still snip unneded stuff]
| and respond to it.
| Your sig then typically follows (but DON'T quote Someone's sig,
| unless that is what you are responding to... and if so, you'd better
| make sure that it is relevant to a Lawhead mailing list, or that it
| is a miniscule fraction of your otherwise completely on-topic post.)

When you answer to a posting, please use _always_ the "reply" or "reply
to list" button. This will keep a thread readable like

| ---- original posting A
| -------| direct answer to A (B)
| ---------------direct answer to B (C)
| --------------------| direct answer to C
| -------| direct answer to A (D)
| ----------------direct answer to D

5. Attachments
