Mailing lists are used extensively for communication amongst members of the OLPC community. They are used for software/hardware development, user and deployment support, general disussion, community outreach, and more. With some exceptions, OLPC mailing lists are public, meaning that anyone can subscribe and post, and anyone (even those without subscriptions) can read the archives.
