Users and developers communicate information about the project on the mailing lists. Currently, two mailing lists exist: the developer’s list and the user’s list. To join the lists, go to the following locations and follow the instructions there:

  • The vtk-users list is open to the public. Use this list to post general questions about how to use VTK, ask for help, and offer suggestions to improve VTK.
  • The vtk-developers list is for developers of VTK. Use this list if you are interested in developing and contributing your own classes.

Searching the mailing lists

It is good etiquette to search for a previously posted answer to a question before posting to the mailing list. The mailing lists are open to web robots, so it is possible to make queries on the user’s mailing list at Markmail and other sites: http://vtk.markmail.org.
