Some of the sub-projects have moved from the sourceforge mailing lists to Google Groups (which can also be used as a mailing list). However we (as project admins) have - at the moment - no plans to move firebird-support away from Yahoo Groups. Also, what looks to be temporary hick ups in a service that has worked relatively well for the past 18 years (since November 2000) is not a good enough reason to move a mailing list with 7500+ subscribers, especially given the fact that 1) because of the GDPR we can't simply resubscribe everyone on a new list, 2) we'd lose the archive, and 3) it'd cause a lot of confusion + other issues. If the service continues to be degraded, we'll start a discussion if and how to address that. Mark -- Mark Rotteveel
