to be able to contribute any significant amount of time to the
development of Evolution, but occasionally have questions or

such contributions. I also make a distinction between web hosted forums,
where one can look for answers and post questions and observations, and
mailing lists. It seemed to me that the only way to forward any
communication to anyone involved with the development of evolution was
to sign up for the mailing list. In my past experience with other open
source projects, this has resulted in receiving a continuous barrage of
emails dealing with specific coding issues, which are certainly
important to the developer group working on the project, but of no
interest to those people who simply use the product. 

There's a developers mailing list for that sort of thing - this mailing
list is for users.

For the most part,
the questions asked by most users are not of interest to me either. I am
interested in having a place (a virtual place) to go where I can look
for answers to questions about how to use the Evolution product. I have
been using Evolution for several years, and have searched multiple times
for some source that provides answers to the questions I have, but have
not been able to find such a source.

Have you looked in the archive of this mailing list?

Finally, I am surprised and gratified by the response I have received to
my somewhat grumpy email (Ralf Mardorf also responded),

Why surprised?  This mailing list is exactly for that sort of thing -
you have a query or comment about evolution: people here will help you.


We all are sometimes angry and use rough words, if software we like
becomes unstable. Btw. I tend to switch to another MUA within the next
weeks, but I'll keep Evolution and to notice, when it becomes stable
again and if wanted, to help getting rid of bugs.

FWIW the issues I experience until yesterday, as expected, aren't
related to the kernel.

I can't mark text anymore :(.
