Mailing Lists

Dec 6th, 2008 Posted in | No Comments »

Primary communication between LinuxChix members is via email lists and include lists for developers on the Tech Talk, Programming, and Kernel Chix lists, technology and gender issue focused lists on the Grrls Only and Grrltalk lists, and a welcoming learning environment for those new to Linux on the New Chix list. The complete list of the LinuxChix mailing lists can be found on the LinuxChix site here. With the exception of Grrls Only the lists are not gender exclusive.

The Los Angeles Chix mailing list is primarily used to coordinate local meetings and area specific announcements. You can subscribe to the Los Angeles Chix list here.

Please email Sharon or Betty for more information on the Los Angeles of LinuxChix. If you are looking for a chapter in your area, the main LinuxChix site has a complete list.



    There are a number of development communities for women, specific to a number of Linux-related, Free Software and/or Open Source projects. If a women’s group doesn’t exist for a project you’re interested in, feel free to join their main development group for project-specific things, and Linuxchix for encouragement and mentoring for the problems specific to being a woman in the Free Software/Open Source community.
