tl;dr: We have some new discussion groups. Sign up for email@example.com.
For a quick summary, read the Guidelines section below.
As our community has grown, so has discussion around Dart, so we have created four new discussion groups, and updated a few others.
firstname.lastname@example.org : Dart Announcements
This group is for official announcement for the Dart project. This will be product releases, breaking changes, major events, press briefs, and other important messages for the entire Dart community. For now, the group will remain limited to a select group of individuals who manage specific parts of the Dart project.
I recommend signing up for this group today, as it is a low volume way to stay up to date with Dart on a day-to-day level.
Note: Replies to announcements in this group should go to email@example.com to keep the announce list noise-free, but still provide a forum for discussion.
In a few weeks we will remove the forward to firstname.lastname@example.org to prevent unnecessary duplicate e-mails, so sign up now!
email@example.com : Dart Core Project and Libraries Development
This is the list to go to if you want to discuss the development of the Dart open source project. As the project continues to grow, it’s important to be able to stay connected with state of the core of Dart itself.
This is a good place to talk about core library APIs, discuss breaking changes, and interact with the Dart engineering team. If you’re thinking of contributing to the Dart project, let us know in this group!
This list will be more technical than some of the other lists, so keep that in mind when subscribing. You should subscribe to this list if you’re interested in keeping up with day to day Dart development and engineering.
firstname.lastname@example.org : Dart DOM/HTML Libraries Development
If you want to keep up with the latest developments to the HTML/DOM libraries, here’s where to go! The libraries in question are: dart:html, dart:svg, dart:web_audio, dart:web_gl, dart:indexed_db, dart:web_sql, and dart:chrome, but it’s possible there will be more. This is the group to follow to hear about changes to DOM bindings.
I recommend signing up for this group, as it is a medium volume way to stay up to date with anything changing in the main DOM libraries. If you build client applications, or just care about the modern web, stay tuned!
email@example.com : Dart Editor and Plugin Development and Discussion
If you use the Dart Editor to write Dart code, or debug Dart applications, or for any reason at all, this is the group for you. The Editor team loves, probably more than any other team, receiving feedback. This list is a great place to talk about what you want to see in the Editor, and discuss the state of the Dart IDE.
Just a reminder about the other groups we have:
firstname.lastname@example.org : Miscellaneous Discussion
email@example.com : Dart VM Development
firstname.lastname@example.org : dart2js Development
email@example.com : Dart Web UI Package Discussion
The following groups are read-only, as their posts are auto-generated:
firstname.lastname@example.org : Commits to the Dart Repository
email@example.com : Dart Issue Tracker Updates
firstname.lastname@example.org : Dart Code Review Updates
And just to be clear, here are guidelines for posting to any of the groups:
- For HOWTO questions, consider asking on StackOverflow.
- If you can phrase your question as "how do I do X?" then StackOverflow is the place for you.
- For bug reports and feature requests, file a new issue at www.dartbug.com/new.
- For Web UI questions, see the email@example.com group, which has links and resources in its welcome message.
- If your question is about how to use the Web UI package, try StackOverflow first.
- For Dart Editor questions, use the firstname.lastname@example.org group.
- If you are reporting a bug or a crash, use the "SEND FEEDBACK" button in the Editor itself, or use www.dartbug.com/new.
- For questions about dart:html development,
use the email@example.com group.
- For questions about VM development, use the firstname.lastname@example.org group.
- For questions about dart2js development, use the email@example.com
- For all other discussions about code Dart development, use the firstname.lastname@example.org group.
- For everything else that doesn’t fit any of the above, use the email@example.com group.
