Mr. Dinan,

Thanks for your reply.  I subscribed to the Opensource mailing list last night, following the link in your email.  What I can't seem to understand is that the  newsgroup and other cse hosted newsgroups are members only, and the availablity of them is not publicized.  That is I have no rules, no agreements to follow when I have questions to ask and I have no way to know what is considered to be acceptable questions, what is not, and how to conduct myself and what to comply with.  Under such circumstances, there are no hopes for fixes, no work-arounds to the forbidden territory, no communications are possible, except for heading toward the uncurable, the unsolvable, the dead end.  That is truly "god forbidden", and it is dragging the entire human structure down, that would take the unimaginable to rebuild.  Yes I mean civilization!  I mean we need a civilized regualtions to follow in our daily life.

Sorry about that!  Posting on the mailing list is restricted to
subscribers.  This is just for cutting down on spam, everyone is welcome
to join.  You can sign up here:


I'm sure we have some members in the group that are familiar with
Eclipse and it is open source, so you're more than welcome to post your
questions.  The only suggestions I would make is that when you are
posting to a large mailing list it's best to try and ask specific
(rather than general) questions and it's polite to do some research on
the web first to see if the question has already been answered before
you post.

Best of luck!
